Stop being so religious like that

Do sad people have in

It seems they have all built a shrine
To the past

And often go there
And do a strange wail and

What is the beginning of happiness?

It is to stop being
So religious



-Master Shams-ud-din Mohammad Hafiz

Words to live by. This has been a week for all of Carlos' friends to reflect and look back. But we've also been so great at bringing him into the present. Dancing, laughing- these are some of the best ways to pay tribute to such a fun-loving man. As the days go on, perhaps it will be made easier to stop looking over our shoulders and figure out innovative ways to keep his spirit moving forward. Donations made for his family, perhaps. Volunteering for various organizations. Doing ourselves the very best we can to be healthy- sleeping enough, eating well, saying an emphatic no to leading mundane lives, opening our hearts to others.
