An illustration

As nowadays there is nothing good in my mind but just to study so I think its a perfect time for me to share things that are lost in my inbox for so long.

When I publish this post about the Book Cover 2 in August this year, I never realized that the author of the book would himself talk to me in person. After that, he send me this illustration of hummingbirds ( for my love for featuring birds and trees) which was part of an article in the NY Times on the naming of things, and why it has fallen by the wayside in modern times.


I am really thankful to him for sending me this illustration which no doubt proves to be a fascinating addition for my blog.

Indeed - these birds have come to light upon the branches of the tree in your heart.

Wonder how this beautiful illustration of hummingbirds reminds you of Farid al-Din Attar's "Conference of Birds"...

Where is the Simurgh?!
