  • "Water that's poured inside will sink the boat
    While water underneath keeps it afloat.
    Driving wealth from his heart to keep it pure
    King Solomon preferred the title 'Poor':
    That sealed jar in the stormy sea out there
    Floats on the waves because it's full of air,
    When you've the air of dervishood inside
    You'll float above the world and there abide"

    ~ Rumi

    I just watched your video on YouTube, Ray. I hope you don't mind, I'm a curious person. So, I just had to go and search for the video you mentioned in your story.

    During the 12 minutes and 15 seconds video, my emotions went something like this:

    Oh no
    Smile wider

    Let us all dance together in this great creative consciousness that is Cowbird and celebrate who we are; not who we should, could or would have been.

    And the glasses look really sexy, Ray. *wink*
