There is a poem by the 13th century Sufi poet and founder of the The Mewlewī Sufi order Jalal al-din Rumi beginning with the line “You are the drop, and the ocean.” So the puzzle which accompanies this album is not a single piece from a puzzle of 500 pieces. Actually in the sufi way of accepting the wholeness of the World it is the entire Puzzle in One piece. - Edward Jarvis
