All Faith hold wisdom, all men of good intent journey toward the light. The famous Sufi poet Hafiz of Persia made the following verse sometime between 1315-1390








Hafiz of Persia

 Even after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
'You owe me.'
Look what happens with
A love like that.
It lights the whole sky.



One of the hardest things to do is to give without expecting anything in return, not even the joy of giving is owed you. {I'm talking to myself ;) I do that alot!}

    Hi Deb, don't think I am an angel whatever you do, I just love helping people, I do need to work on clearing my head of all the rubbish in there, I am not one of these people who can just put things into little boxes, it is ALL THERE AT ONCE WITH ME!..
