Magic Carpet Ride

It's amazing what you can find in Northern New Mexico. Last night I was invited to a zikhr (sp?)--an evening of Sufi music. It was held in a yurt up in Abiquiu. There is a small Sufi--Muslim community there and they are amazing musicians. They had a guest cellist visiting from Boulder who was astounding.

Entering the yurt, you really feel like you're entering another time and space. Almost like tipi ceremonies I've been in before. It could be 300 years ago--timeless.

It was a warm cozy evening with tea and cookies and smiles and deeply meditating and singing the names of God. Beautiful.
