A Bowl of Rumination

In the last few years, with talk of impending global apocalypse surrounding us, many have turned to the comforting solace found in the writings of the ancient scribe Jalal al-Din Muhammad Rumi aka Mowlana aka RUMI.

Everyone from Madonna to Francis Ford Coppola to Deepak Chopra have advocated his works. (Still waiting on Oprah, though.)

Last night at the cavernous Hollywood Bowl, a crowd of over 15,000 attended a concert featuring Yo-Yo Ma and Kayhan Kalhor. A glowing review is found over here at the LA Times.
