Stories, both mythical and everyday, form a
pathway leading to the creation of artwork.

Here's a playful little sketch illustrating what I thought was a poem by the mystical Persian poet known as Hafez, or Hāfiz, from the 1300s:
As can sometimes happen when doing a quick check online, something surprising emerges...namely that this poem is now known to not be by Hāfiz, but by contemporary poet Daniel Ladinsky ~ from a Hāfiz-inspired dream.
Given that, it's a little ironic that I unintentionally mis-quoted it with "The Sun never says to the Moon..."
For me, it remains a poem that speaks of the transcendent and transformative power of unconditional love.
