    In Sâd Maydân, Ansari lists Jealousy (غيرة) among the stations on the path, defining it as such: “Jealousy is being envious of something you want but do not have, and nothing else can replace it.”
    I don’t often use triangles, which are an “incomplete” shape (3 is 1 short of wholeness), but their asperity imposed itself here and produced an interesting effect of a shape that looks folded upon itself.

    A penny for your thoughts...
