This is so lovely. I have to try some mandalas with the dark paper. I had the paper all out and ready... then, my life completely started to fall apart, and I am innundated with re-creating myself (and that was after a whole year with constant change and holes to be plugged). So, no mandalas on dark paper for me yet. But you are inspiring me. I have the plan for recreating myself and my life in order, with a big To Do list. Maybe once I get a little further down that list I will have some time. I should do the new mandalas now though, shouldn't I, and manifest the change with perfect ease. That's what mandalas are for! Silly me. Ok, gotta make time, or manifest some time for mandalas and manifesting. Yes that is it manifest time for manifesting! :)

thank you Merton.
Think of the dark paper as a symbol of the planet before light came.
the white color a symbol for the light that brings out all the other colors and life itself.
it seems you are at the exact time to draw a mandala on a dark paper, don't you think?

Ty for your thoughtful comment. Yes, I do think this would be the exact time. However, I have to decide what I "want." I know what seems to be required of me and have sort of set the wheels in motion to sort of recreate myself and my life, according to what I have learned about myself, my strengths, my limitations.

I do not think I have been quiet enough or listened enough, first. This is pretty typical of me. I try to listen, get quiet... and of course I watch for synchronicity,try to sense when I am being guided, "ask to know" as I often suggest to my students/clients...

But still, I think I am rather noisy inside, and rather human in this regard. I will think on this, and when/if I am ready, make a mandala. I suppose I should just listen to my own rhetoric, "jump in the pool," as I often say, and see what happens when I put pencil to paper.

Maybe the making of the mandala will teach me, guide me, reveal itself. I find this to be so with poetry, drawing in general... so I should just trust, trust, trust and get to mandala making.

I am just so overwhelmed right now, and feel like I am living in a dream or some alternate reality, where I do not quite recognize myself, my partner, my little world, or even the world at large. It all seems so sped up, strange, sort of like the world I remember, but also very unfamiliar...

like I woke up from a dream and all was changed...

or maybe I went from one dream into another...

or maybe my previous life was all a dream and this is reality.

All seem like possibilities. Hmmmm...

:wow: wow, hadas.. that is truly awesome! I can't believe how even your lines still are, and then those tiny leaves.. sheesh! Maybe you were meant to injure your finger so you would get to experience that your other hand, the one we often considere kinda useless since we don't know what it can do. Well, there you go! That left hand's got a life all on its own! Use it again, see what wants to come out! :boogie: :dance:
haha, maybe I'm going to try that too now :lmao:

my thoughts exactly.
isn't that amazing?
I know a drumer that has only one hand.
he is a wonderful player and musician
I once asked him " if you are so good now, how good were you with tow hands?"
you can probably guess his answer
he said "I'm a much better musician now.
the handicap made me create music in such creative means"
he plays with one hand, tow feet and a very big heart :)

I'm admiring how even the lines still look! That's great! :wow:
And I also feel with you! :hug: Three years ago I broke the scaphoid bone (one of the carpal bones) of my right hand. It was such a weird, but also fascinating experience to use the left-hand. But my writing and painting didn't look half as neat as yours ;)
