As can I. And its simplicity, along with the 4 quarter arrangement, is esthetically pleasing

That's what I was going for (that Art degree was good for something  ;D ). Maybe I'll see how 'earth' looks with dots inside the curve, instead of lines outside.

How interesting that upon revisiting this, I read the Sefiru's symbols the same way as Altair and Kylara, when I'd originally read them as they'd been imagined by the artist, Sefiru (I decided to test myself without reading the 'definition' first just out of interest, and this time I got water correct again, but lower left I saw as the sun therefore fire, and lower right as a little shoot therefore earth, and upper right as a breeze therefore air).
“Radiate boundless love towards the entire world — above, below, and across — unhindered, without ill will, without enmity.” – The Buddha
(From the Metta Sutta)
