a field in germany and a glorious fragment from rumi.


we have to be Up and At Em early and all day today – tasks and digital lessons and People to Meet and things to Do.

but we wanted to leave a little picture and a poem for you here.

this fragment by Rumi kept coming to mind and we thought about a Suitable picture and the only field we could remember taking a photograph of was in Hamburg in 2009 (who-we-are-in-real-life was being all grown up and proper and speaking at Nokia World in a nice slim-fitting black trouser suit and Prada motorcycle boots).

so here is the field –


and here is the poem

I’ll Meet You There
by Rumi

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing
there is a field. I will meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn’t make any sense.

don’t go yet!

there’s a magical bit……….(tis us, after all, darlings ;-)


we saw this sign in Hamburg when we went to buy fizzy mineral water and fruit to eat back at the hotel during jetlag despair.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAa full two years before we started to write as teamgloria but something knew; something said “take the bloody picture”

so we did.

isn’t that GLORIAous?
