With ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ
Thank you, David Darling (4 March 1941 – 8 January 2021)
Sometimes you hear a voice through the door calling you,
as fish out of water hear the waves,
or a hunting falcon hears the drums.
Come back. Come back.
This turning toward what you deeply love saves you.
— Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks
