love is reckless


Love is reckless, not reason;
reason seeks a profit.
Love comes on strong,
consuming herself, unabashed.

Yet, in the midst of suffering,
Love proceeds like a millstone,
hard surfaced and straightforward.

Having died of self-interest,
she risks everything and asks for nothing.

Love gambles away every gift God bestows.

Without cause God gave us Being.
Without cause, give it back again.

-Rumi

does he now, Kath?!


I do love him, and even though I am beat from a day of driving, taxes, and farming I just pulled on a new set of breeches and am heading down to groom and ride him. We need our workouts, us!

Rumi is one of my favorites. So are horses and anything that involves them. Including mucking.

I love this and the dulcimer video and just about everything on your blog. What a brave and bold lady you are! I often think about your grandma whom you wrote about last Halloween, the one who came at age 18 and made a fantastic life that included so many - you are like that.
