quote: rumi

…First, when I was apart from you,
this world did not exist,
nor did any other.

Second, whatever I was looking for
was always you…

[from I Have Five Things to Say, as quoted in Barks’ The Essential Rumi

…There’s nothing worse than to walk out along the street
without you. I don’t know where I’m going.
You’re the road and the knower of roads,
more than maps, more than love.

[from The Arc of Your Mallet, as quoted in Barks’ The Essential Rumi


Author: Mari Adkins

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
