A New Year's Greeting from Margaret Dodd

Photography © 2013 Margaret Kay Dodd



Which is worth more, a crowd of thousands
or your own genuine solitude?
Freedom, or power over an entire nation?

A little while alone in your room
will prove more valuable than anything else
that could ever be given you.
--Rumi


Many thanks to my friend, Margaret Dodd, for sending the above new year's greeting--a pairing of her photograph with a poem by Rumi. Like last year, she has graciously given me permission to post the image along with the poem.

Margaret is a photographer, publisher, and graphic designer who divides her time between Santa Barbara and the Netherlands. A book of her photographs is in the works.

May we all find peace within. Happy New Year to all!
