“My mother was a braid of black smoke. She bore me swaddled over the burning cities. The sky was a vast and windy place for a child to play. We met many others who were just like us. They were trying to put on their overcoats with arms made of smoke. The high heavens were full of little shrunken deaf ears instead of stars.” – Charles Simic, The World Doesn’t End “In all cultures the family imprints its members with selfhood. Human experience of identity has two elements; a sense of belonging and a sense of being separate.

I was deeply in love with Rumi then, who I found by chance one afternoon hiding in the library stacks while cutting school. He became my companion for years, this same book’s fissured spine and water damaged pages sat on my hearth alters collecting wax while transmitting the Sufi mystic’s insights on joy, freedom, and the Friend. Eventually it was replaced, but only after it inspired…

Life's ambition occupy my time Priorities confuse the mind Happiness one step behind This inner peace I've yet to find Rivers flow into the sea Yet even the sea is not so full of me If I'm not blind why can't I see That a circle can't fit where a square should be There's a hole in my heart That can only be filled by you - “Hole Hearted,” by Gary Cherone and Nuno Bettencourt Mandalas have gained a great deal of visibility and attention in modern western culture recently, and with good reason. Although the word “mandala” itself is of Sanskrit origin and the best known examples of Mandalas come from Asian traditions of Hinduism…
