Rumi on love and kindness

My plan today is to just "be kind". I'm working on the first of the 2019 Simple Inspiration Calendar designs and the quote is from by Rumi, my favorite. "Your acts of Kindness are iridescent Wings of Divine Love, which linger ad continue to uplift others long after your sharing." It's such a beautiful quote and I hope my painting does it justice. It will have flowers, hummingbirds and butterflies. The hummingbirds are mostly iridescent anyway.

So I'm looking for places to be kind. On my walk this morning a cat came up to me and seemed to want to walk with me, or rather lead me on a walk. So I walked the short way behind her and lovingly petted her at the end telling her how beautiful she was.

Here is another Rumi quote amongst hummingirds that will be in the 2017 calendar.
