They See Enormous Things / by Rebecca Tillett

My wonderful cousin, @artxcassandraxelaine, gave my family this beautiful piece of art she illustrated and collaged for Christmas. It’s a portrait of my husband, my daughter and myself (and our two kitties!). Mina’s middle name is Rumi so she included a Rumi quote beneath us. I teared up when I saw it and I’m totally in love with it. Isn’t it wonderful?

I am so small I can barely be seen. How can this great love be inside me? Look at your eyes. They are small, but they see enormous things.
— Rumi
