Poetry Reading this Wednesday, April 10 at 1 PM
"Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving, it doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vow a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come." (Rumi -- inscribed on Rumi's shrine in Konya, Turkey.)
