New Arrivals Daily

Nudged this morning back to Rumi’s The Guest House as translated by Coleman Barks, and drawn to the opening lines:

“This being human is a guest house.

Every morning a new arrival.”

Indeed: “Every morning a new arrival.”

Viewed in that light, it seems a little silly to think I can rely blindly on experience with the former arrivals, yesterday’s departures.
