MY 70th BIRTHDAY
I turned 70 this past month. No, don't send me a birthday card. Just send me an
answer to the question "How then shall we live?" And listen to Jalal ad-din Rumi:
I keep running to reach the Friend.
My life nears its end, but still I am asleep.
Let's say I will reach the Beloved by the end;
yet where will I find the days that have passed?
