“Come, come whoever you are!

Wanderer, worshipper,
Lover of leaving

This is not a caravan of despair.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve broken your vow a thousand times,

Still Come and yet again,
Come! 
-Rumi

DANCE to Liberate yourself and Change the World!

Come, come whoever you are!

Wanderer, worshipper, Lover of leaving
This is not a caravan of despair.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve broken your vow a thousand times,
Still Come and yet again, Come!

Rumi
