1. Sparrow read "Gnats Inside the Wind" to the class as we looked at different Rumi poems and I thought I was a real card when I said it reminded me of my favorite Kansas song, "Gnats in the Wind". Then for the rest of the day, I kept singing to myself, "Gnats in the wind/All we are is gnats in the wind."
2. I heard myself saying things about Rumi's poetry I'd never said before and I wondered who that was saying those things.
3. It's kind of like going to see Dr. Stephenson, my dentist, only it's Dan at EuroAsian: competent, no fake friendliness, quick, reliable. It's like Dr. Stephenson's office where I almost look forward to going to the dentist. EuroAsian almost makes me look forward to having my oil changed or my brakes replaced.
