All from our gardens – we must sow our seeds on this shared earth. Rumi is a master at sowing the seeds … where flowers will bloom if one is willing to toil the soil to make it fertile … It’s work. It’s good. Namaste.
August 15th is actually my late father’s 命日”Meinichi” or a anniversary date of his passing. It’s also a day marking the End of War (our last “world war” – not the latest regional wars)
A side note: Super interesting site directed to Japanese Middle Schoolers but anyone can benefit is THIS:), where there is an article that it’s only in Japan August 15th is officially recognized as end of WWII and start of peacetime whereas rest of the world celebrates a slightly different date.
