Say yes

“Inside you there’s an artist you don’t know about…. Say yes quickly, if you know, if you’ve known it from before the beginning of the universe.”  —  Jalai Ud-Din Rumi




  1. you are oficially hired, sending your pay thru the computer cupholder

    I am trying VERY hard to be NON negative and get UN depressed”I have all y’all helping, its working

  2. wow, that is such an awesome quote, I love it. thanks for sharing

  3. You’re welcome 🙂

    I saw it in the sidebar of the introductory chapter to TAW, and I’d seen it before, but it really got to me this time. I figured I’d spread the awe.

    I’m a huge Rumi fan. Cannot get enough of his poetry, esp. as translated by Coleman Barks.

  4. Judi, I’m so glad it’s helping you 🙂 I know what depression feels like. It sounded from your blog like you are still grieving, as well. I am glad you still have the courage to *create* through this difficult time. May your Art be part of your healing!

    Sending you hugs and encouragement and wishing you a moment or two of pure joy today.

  5. oh wow. beautiful photo and quote.

  6. I’m so glad everyone enjoyed this! I’m thinking of posting more inspiring quotes with pretty photos on the days when I, myself, get inspired or need a pick-me-up. Rumi alone has enough gorgeous, uplifting words to keep me busy for the next millenia or so.
