Rumi sums it up

Things are such,
that someone lifting a cup, or watching the rain,
petting a dog,

or singing, just singing-
could be doing as much for this universe
as anyone.

Rumi is such a fantastic poet, an in-depth cartographer of the human psyche. I've been sitting with this particular poem for several months now and find it hugely comforting. To illustrate it here are some pictures from time spent on Shetland and Fair Isle. Wishing all who read this a very Happy New Year.
