Knock Knock

It’s a blustery day here in Portland, perfect for cozy coffee shop study time. At one of my favourites, Dragonfly Cafe, this Rumi quote was on the wall. Even with the arrival of wind and rain and two big tests this week knocking at the door, I’m trying to keep my guest house open, welcoming in the moments of wonder and little surprises that perk up each day.

I like to imagine my guest house with a screened in porch to sit on when it rains, with a tower room up top filled with books, with a big table in the kitchen to fit all my friends, and tall windows to let all the light in. Be my neighbour?

Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Balkhī (Persian: جلال‌الدین محمد بلخى), known to the English-speaking world simply as Rumi (30 September 1207 – 17 December 1273), was a 13th-century Persian Muslim poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic.



  1. Lovely blog! I’m sharing your image to my Fan Page on FB and I will add your blog site in the comments. I hope this is okay. I just heard this quote for the first time today and it really spoke to me. I loved your image and want to share with others! My website should be up this week! ❤
