Hello, I'm Henry.  

Welcome aboard my blog's home. 

If you come along with me, you'll become acquainted with my motley mates and faithful crew:

Experiences, Sightings, Observations, Impressions, Ideas, Reflections, Remembrances, Insights and Commentary.

They, after all, have accompanied me for as long as I can recall. Their tenure has helped me turn my tiller, fill my sails, and transport me over seas to distant lands. Maybe if you take the time to get to know them, a few will do the same for you.

Click this way and scroll along if you please...Enjoy your stay.   

Rumi on Water

Rumi on Water

We are the boat, we are the sea, I sail in you, you sail in me.

Rumi's Moving Sea Words ~

Anyone familiar with Rumi's wisdom knows his connection to water. His poems often include sea, stream, river and ocean references, personifications and metaphors that express simple, yet profound truths. Like the sea, his fluid, playful words move readers by their simplicity and depth. This Turkish mystic's 800-year-old poetry is so popular today, he has become America's' best-selling poet in 2017.

See if his words written over ten centuries ago move you as they move many others...

Water ~

The Water said to the dirty one, “Come here.”

The dirty one said,“I am too ashamed.”

The water replied, “How will your shame be washed away without me?
— Rumi
