Publisher's Summary

"What I had thought of before as God, I met today in a human being."
Those were the words of the Persian mystic poet Rumi upon meeting the wild dervish Shams Tabriz. And out of their friendship bloomed many of Jelaluddin Rumi's most inspired verses.
In Just Being Here, the acclaimed poet Coleman Barks joins master cellist David Darling in a celebration of friendship - some of Rumi's most memorable poems on the subject and five of Coleman's own - illuminated within the interplay of Coleman's inspired readings and David's music. Listen in and let them widen and deepen your senses, like a fresh breeze that invites you to breathe freely and surrender to love in all of its changing guises.

Rumi great; original pieces opposite

I love Rumi, have read his works over 20 years, all translated By Coleman Barks. His Rumi is great, his sneaking original works into it is not. Find a Rumi only Audio book
