  1. The Circle of Loving Kindness, Maitri… And all beginning with kindness for oneself… Unconditional friendship with oneself. That seems impossible for me, but I’m trying, in very small steps. Thank you for this reminder, Rob. Be well, be happy. Hugs on the wing.

      1. I went on a Google excursion looking for info about the image. It seems so rich with symbiology. I didn’t turn up anything specific about it (including the artist), but found one site connecting it with Maitri.

    1. Good question, Laurel. The mural was on the wall of what used to be a free pharmacy, so I did some research. The pear is a Chinese symbol of immortality; Native Americans believed blueberries are sent by the Great Spirit to relieve the children’s hunger during a famine, and corn is a symbol of life and fertility.
