Although totally arbitrary, this day, the first of the New Year, often produces quiet reflection and the need to contemplate life’s mid-course corrections. It's a good day to look at the stars and see if we are adrift.
In honor of such self-evaluation, here are a few lines from the 13th century poet simply know as Rumi.
“Those who don’t feel this love
pulling them like a river,
those who don’t drink dawn
like a cup of springwater
or take in sunset like supper,
those who don’t want to change,
let them sleep.”
