Rumi, Ramadan, and Riding out the afternoon fast

If a tree could run or fly it would not suffer from the teeth of a saw or the blows of an axe.

If the Sun did not run across the sky the world would not see the colors of morning

If water did not rise from the sea plants would not be quickened by rivers of rain.

It is only when a drop leaves the ocean and returns- that it can find an oyster and become a pearl.  -Rumi

Today is the first day of Ramadan in Morocco! Leave behind what is sour and bitter -move toward what is sweet.

On today’s menu: ‘Mish mesh’ juice = apricot. mmmm
