|Friends Out for a Friday Afternoon Stroll!|
Tomorrow night, I'm invited to a zikr (meditation) led by a local sheikh. I'm very much looking forward to that--and the chance to sit in prayer with practicing Sufis. After that, it's on to see the dervishes of Konya, who are celebrated far and wide.
At some point, probably on Facebook, I'll post a short video shot today: the call to prayer from above Mevlana's tomb. What's kind of cool about it is that it captures (somewhat) the way many muezzins call their mosques to prayer at more or less the same time. It's not as if they compete, really; but they certainly share the public airwaves!
