I have subscribed to Winds of Change.NET through RSS (both in Firefox and My Yahoo!, incidentally) for some time now. I discovered it by links from mentions in Armed and Dangerous, the Lessig Blog, Boing Boing, and other places. One of my favorite part of their site is their weekly Sufi Wisdom series. From a recent entry entitled 'Flour and Salt':
comes from Shah's The Way of the Sufi,(I think I'd like to find out where I can get a copy) and at the end they ask:
What is the lesson here? What are the flour and salt, and what is the fool's mistake?I attempted an answer in their comments section:
And there is (as of now) an interesting and thoughtfull discussion happening in the article's comments section over the meaning of the parable. There's one in particular that suggest that there may be more than one fool in the story.
And you know something, this is what trackback is made for. Trackback is very usefull for showing context for things like these. A good reason to switch to Blogger, or at the very least a good reason to use Haloscan for the commenting system. If I can afford it, I think I'd rather get a Typepad account when (if ever?) I can afford one.
Newbie bloggers needs exposure from Trackback. Myself included. And other technologies too. I think I'll attempt an entry on on it. Or at least an entry linking to a Trackback essay with comments. Real Soon Now™.
addendum: I just discovered that
