Evening, fellow bloggers!
As you may have noticed, I’ve started getting into a routine of blogging again (finally!) It’s been a while, what with moving house, starting my new job and completing my final assignments for university. I can honestly say, it feels great to be back on the scene again; I’m a little rusty but working on it. The 4am starts and 9.30pm finishes are relatively challenging, I have to admit, but working in an airport gives me a bit more free time during the week, and whatever free time I do have I’ll spend working on my site to make it the best it can be.
I’m loving living in the countryside, too. It’s slightly daunting being away from the city, as I’ve lived in London all my life; nevertheless the house is beautiful and the town is extremely picturesque. The space and the rolling hills have seduced me into a lover of the country already. Luckily for me, I’m very close to someone who lives not too far from me, meaning exploring! The one thing I love more than anything is travelling and exploring new places, which is why this is such an exciting time for me; not to mention, it’ll look fantastic on my photography portfolio.
Moving on to my blog, I’ve recently started exploring the world of Rumi, the unimaginably talented Persian poet and mystic. I’ve started reading Whispers of the Beloved, and I’ve fallen in love with him, and his poetry. I can honestly say I’ve never come across poetry, or in this case, quatrains, that speak directly of and to the heart and soul. There are some quatrains that are so invariably moving, I needed to stop reading just to fully appreciate all Rumi stood and still stands for. His devotion to spirituality, not to mention Shams, the beloved friend of whom his poetry relates to, weakens and strengthens the soul all at the same time.
I’m going to create a category of Rumi’s work to add to my other categories! His work is too beautiful to keep to myself, and from the overwhelmingly positive response I’ve received from all you wonderful people on my blog posts and original pieces, I’m sure you will fall in love with his work if you haven’t already.
