I'm sorry the photo isn't very clear -- I must get a camera that accommodates shaky hands :-). I'm also sorry that I took the photo after two women had left. I love being around a group of women who are interested in exploring creative expressions. I am inspired by them and the sense of community we are building.
I was inspired to finish my mandala. I was drawn to use the butterfly shape ... perhaps because of the transformative process our creativity playdates is for me.
I've been doing mandalas for the past couple of weeks. I find them quite relaxing and meditative, helpful in times of stress. For the one below, I focused on my students and the relationship I have with them and they have with one another. All different and diverse, together we/they create the unity of a learning community.
