  2. Yeah, these are amazing. Naamah and I are mesmerized. Shame nothing else will get done today!

  3. Oh, what’s the text the peacock piece?

  4. Naamah as in Paley?! Whoa!
    The peacock is a persian poem, the text is:
    بی‌ گمان زان جهان رویایی
    زهره بر من فکنده دیدهٔ عشق
    می‌ نویسم به‌ روی دفتر خویش
    جاودان باشی‌ ای سپیدهٔ عشق

    That one took me sort of forever.
