I'm still "falling on the ice" over the idea that Rumi might be "snoozerific". I feel stabbed to the heart (slight exaggeration) as he is one of my favorite mystic/poets. Charity Burns should try reading Hafiz, another Persian mystic poet who lived about 100 years after Rumi. Try Daniel Ladinsky's renditions of Hafiz in his book entitled "The Gift". Full of humor and wisdom yet not overly pedantic....and I've never snoozed through a Hafiz reading! ~Susan Flook
