The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.

Don’t go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.

Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back & forth across the door sill where the two worlds touch.

The door is round & open.

Don’t go back to sleep.

…by Rumi
“The Essential Rumi”
New Expanded Edition
Translation by Coleman Barks
Harper Collins, 2004, p. 36

Welcome to Just Dawn!

I have the expectation that everyone visiting this blog is way more computer literate than I am.  I can hardly believe that I am doing this – my family is truly stunned.  So, be forewarned, that while I know a lot about the topic I am blogging, I actually know very little about blogs, websites & computers in general.  I am very blessed to have WordPress, my husband, my nephew & their expertise to help me.  Please forgive me for not knowing all the web lingo & technicalities & for any mistakes that I may make along the way.  I hope that eventually, I will be able to say that I know what I’m doing here!

If you are a newcomer to this site, please make sure to check out the entire site.  The first post below is my most recent one & below that you will find my earlier posts.  The “Posting Guidelines” page is a must-read before you post a comment for the first time. To post a comment or to read others’ comments, scroll down to the end of the post you are interested in & click on the highlighted word “Comment(s)” or “Leave a Comment.” If you then scroll back down again, a large box entitled “Leave a Reply” will have appeared after my blog post for you to fill out & below that the comments that others have posted to that blog post.  Be sure to click on the “Post Comment” at the bottom of the “Leave a Reply” box after you have filled it out, to register your comment on the site.   If this is your first time commenting, your comment may not appear immediately. You can also reply to the comments of others by clicking on the highlighted word “Reply” below their comment, filling out the box that appears & clicking on the “Post Comment” to register it.

If you are an old-timer to this site, please know that I am constantly updating pages & adding pages so recheck them occasionally for new information.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Love, Dawn
