For the last couple of days I kept hearing the phrase “Find Common Ground” and at the same time the visual idea for this mandala appeared in my head. Today, the day before we in the U.S. experience a total eclipse that crosses our country from coast to coast, it seemed like a perfect day to bring this energy into form.
I love how it worked out to be the primary colors in the “non-doodle” areas, and the doodle areas were varying shades related to the primary colors next to them. I especially loved how the sun made it’s presence know in the last image. I’ll take that as a sign of approval. 🙂
Regardless of whether you’re in the path of totally or someplace else on the planet, now more than ever it’s time for all of us to find common ground, to rise above the powers that be that want or need us to remain divided. I find that humor and creative activities work wonders for unifying the masses.
Stories are the common ground that allow people to connect, despite all our defenses and all our differences. ~Kate Forsyth
