Open Thread: Mirror

Hosted by an empty mirror

Let go of your worries

Let go of your worries 
and be completely clear-hearted, 
like the face of a mirror 
that contains no images. 
If you want a clear mirror, 
behold yourself 
and see the shameless truth, 
which the mirror reflects. 
If metal can be polished 
to a mirror-like finish, 
what polishing might the mirror 
of the heart require? 
Between the mirror and the heart 
is this single difference: 
the heart conceals secrets, 
while the mirror does not. 

- Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Friday Recommendations!  What have you been reading/writing/listening to/playing/watching lately?  Shamelessly self-promote or boost the signal on something you think we should know about - the weekend’s coming up, give us something new to explore! 
And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
