Be scratchy, be persistent, show up.

An absolutely brilliant sign at Transformer. A message of encouragement and resilience from the one and only Environmental Performance Agency based in New York City. The dynamic exhibit and its ingenious programming (including a variety of performances, workshops, interventions, peaceful protests, weedy walks, spontaneous-plant-appreciation and observation, etc) are up and running until mid-June. Don’t miss it!

Live Interview with the EPA:

Your First Eyes/444

“A lover has four streams inside, of water, wine, honey, and milk. Find those in yourself and pay no attention to what so -and – so says about such and such. The rose does not care if someone calls it a thorn, or a jasmine. Ordinary eyes categorize human beings.

‘That one is Zoroastrian. This one is Muslim.’ Walk instead with the other vision given to you,

Your first eyes.

Bow to the essence in a human being. Do not be content with judging people good and bad. Grow out of that. The great blessing is that Shams has poured a strength into the ground that lets us wait and trust the waiting.” –Rumi
