Rumi Celebration

Thanks to the nearly 70 people who packed the Center for Performing Arts Chapel who helped make our seventeenth annual Rumi Night another success. Many thanks to the individuals who strode to the microphone and shared their illuminating, heart-breaking, and hysterical Rumi poems. Thanks also to Jack Norton for videotaping the event and shooting this photo. And of course, kudos to Hakim Bushnell, Karima Bushnell, Ted and Kristen Eide Tollefson and all who made it happen. Thanks also to Coleman Barks whose English versions of Rumi from the original Persian has aided in this renaissance of a 13th century mystic’s astonishing poems. Next year, we will need to find a bigger room. A good sign!
