800


Just a quick note to wish everyone a happy Rumi's 800th birthday. Hmm, a trip from Balkh to Konya could be fun.

The BBC had an article on his birthday here.

From the Masnavi:

Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.

I'm great. Have been busy like never before. So you stil never divulged your age to those of us who don't know you personally... :op

Good to hear you're doing well.

Well, a radiologist I was working with guessed that I was 22, so that is my New Age.

Thanks, I love that photo too. :) It wasn't easy to take in the relative darkness of the mevlevihanesi.
