Rumi on the Tempered Voice

“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” 

Comment: I read these words by Jalal ad Din Muhammad Rumi a few days ago and it prompted me to reflect on the sometimes vitriolic language here on the blog.

Part of that reflection has everything to do with an unintended new year's resolution I am keeping; cussing is out and angry accusations are tempered. 

I nonetheless remain my mother's best looking son - though undeniably an uneasy, unsteady, and wasteful work in progress.  :o)
