“I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being” — Hafez (via Deeyah Khan)
And Bangalore decided to show me today.
I ran to the tunes of this unexpectedly foggy morning today.
Coconut trees wrapped in dew. Skies shrouded in a pale light. It was a tempo run, but it felt like Life was the tempo today – a beautiful pianist at the peak of her powers, playing her music to the dance of light and shadow. After a while, the sun came out, as it must, and that piano gave way to the crescendo of heavy metal, sending those waves of cloud and mist away.
I ran through this all.
It made me feel that, perhaps, I have seen hope in action today.
That I was shown the astonishing light of being.
What gives you hope these days?
