I Shake the Dust

All I ask you to do on this fine foggy morning, writing to you from high on the Santa Cruz mountains,


to …



Just dance. No better song to do that to is Jack White’s  I’m Shakin’. Just dance for god’s sake, OK? So much to be happy and thankful in your life. So many things. Just dance and thank God, K?

Sending happy feet vibes and gratitude fever,
~ Drew


Rumi Shakin’

I would shake the dust from my coat, and rise

If I realized my own perfection.

I would rush to the sky, empty and light;

My head would be high as the ninth heaven.

~ Rumi

It Shakes You

“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.”

~ Rumi
