The photos come from a day we visited the museum at the old railroad station where a lot of cotton passed through is now SCAD-the incredible fine arts college here in Savannah. Everywhere are SCAD saved buildings in historic Savannah supporting and training every aspect of fine arts. Wonderful young people that open up and tell you about themselves. A waiter in their restaurant the Griphith, who wants to do Shakespeare. A arts business major at the “little black dress” show and so on.
Loved this when I read it. Hope it speaks to some of you,
The Guest House by Rumi
This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
