I have been on about a two year break from reading and writing.
It feels that i was in a relationship that just didn't nurture the spirit of reading and writing.
I loved her and I still do, some relationships just work and some don't.
So now I am back. Maybe with a vengeance. And I have been feeling like I have to write and I have been getting some books from Chapters through the mail. Its good. I am liking it, and i want to keep doing so.
Yesterday, through the mail, I received some books of poems by Rumi. I got about 4 books of his poems. They are translations from his language (Persian) into English. He is from the Twelfth century.
He has poems that are just beautiful.
"Humble living does not diminish. It fills.
Going back to a simpler self gives wisdom.
"When a man makes up a story for his child,
he becomes a father and a child
