Once my laptop and internet access were both up and running again, I had some time left to work on these new mandala designs for my shop - a more clothing-friendly design than my usual photography. The mandala is one I created for a workshop I gave earlier in the year, and I had fun digitally playing with the colors to create a series. The original (with orange outer-circle) was hand-drawn in watercolor pencil, so it is not as perfect as one created on a computer, but I hope the colors and shapes appeal to you! These are also quite lovely as pendants.
At work, we realized that August 12th is the UN's International Youth Day, so hope to engage some young people this week and find out what they would like to improve in our small community.
At home I am continuing to be a bit of a hermit this summer, and enjoying the antics of my cats (who have decided to take their freedom into their own paws, and broken through one of my window screens so they can come and go as they please - rascals! I will allow it for now, as it makes me feel a bit better to know they can come in if they need to - and it's a bit of a jump so hopefully they won't be bringing any unwanted visitors in with them!).
We finally had some much-needed rain, much to the relief of me and my garden (which I am trying my best to sustain using only rain water); my sunflowers have started to open :)
I had a Body Ecology Diet quinoa tabouli for lunch today, still making efforts towards better digestion (it was good!).
