What I found out today. o185



Yesterday it was the 27th day of Ramadan. It's Night of Power and "o
ne common belief is that angels will shower down the peace and blessings of God on all who remain awake during this “Night of Power"."
The power of now, the power of today. It only about freedom and being true to yourself.


Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art--
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors--
No--yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever--or else swoon to death.

~ John Keats "Bright Star"
