And, if you live in the city of Pittsburgh, you should know that the last day to register to vote in the primaries is drawing near (April 18), and there’s lots of mayoral campaign-type stuff going on right now. I live just outside the city so I can’t vote for mayor, but I care about the outcome because it will still affect my life.

And, because I love it so much–here is your Rumi of the day (from Sunlight@yahoogroups.com):

I was going to tell you my story
but waves of pain drowned my voice.
I tried to utter a word but my thoughts
became fragile and shattered like glass.
Even the largest ship can capsize
in the stormy sea of love,
let alone my feeble boat
which shattered to pieces leaving me nothing
but a strip of wood to hold on to.
Small and helpless, rising to heaven
on one wave of love and falling with the next
I don’t even know if I am or I am not.
When I think I am, I find myself worthless,
when I think I am not, I find my value.
Like my thoughts, I die and rise again each day
so how can I doubt the resurrection?
Tired of hunting for love in this world,
at last I surrender in the valley of love
and become free.
