A man entered a village and went to see the Sufi Master. The visitor said, "I'm deciding whether I should move here or not — and I'm wondering what the people here are like?" The Sufi Master said, "Tell me, what kind of people live where you come from." The visitor said, "They were robbers, cheats and liars." The Sufi Master said, "You know, those are exactly the same kind of people who live here." The visitor left and never came back.

Another visitor entered the village and asked the same question of the Sufi Master. "I am thinking of moving here — can you tell me what the people are like?” Again the Sufi Master asked, "Tell me, what kind of people live where you come from?" The visitor said, "Oh, they are the kindest, gentlest, most compassionate, loving people. I shall miss them terribly." The Sufi Master said, "Those are exactly the kinds of people who live here too."

If you turned that picture of the river upside down, you would still be looking at the stars in heaven.

I was thinking something similar, HM.
I was going to ask, which river? The water one or the one made of stars; especially that beautiful swirl of high density stars. So beautiful<3
