September 30, 2007 will mark the 800th anniversary of the great Sufi mystic poet Rumi.  A number like 800 deserves more than one day of celebration, so we’ll be starting ours at 1pm today with Coleman Barks, who has done the finest English-language Rumi translations that I have read.

If you already are familiar with Rumi’s tremendous body of work, I don’t need to write anything else here.  If not, I hope you’ll have a chance to hear today’s show.  There’s plenty of Rumi’s writing, as well as information about him online, as well.  Click here for one good place to start.
