I was going to put something up about the great time I had cooking up a lunchtime feast for Ayesha and Sadia yesterday. But then I read Ali's blog. Rumi, as always.

"These words are for the sake of those who need words to understand. But as for those who understand without words, what use have they for speech? The heavens and earth are words to them, sent forth themselves from the Word of God. Whoever hears a whisper, what need have they for shouting and screaming?"
Stop. Stare. Breathe.
"Can you see, because of what they carry, they will always be a stranger to this world?"

Completely cleft, straight to the bone, butterfly sliced. Wipe eyes.
