The Pedagogue as Truant

Copied 28/11/00 into a steno pad.

A set of lines from Rumi on the teacher:

Your robe brushes a thorn bush,
and a deep chord of music comes.

Whatever you break finds itself
more intelligent for being broken.
Paraphrased by Coleman Barks with for me repair in mind in a type of kintsugi.

And so for day 1577
