my weekend mandalas

I know064
I know
I asked John what I should call this and he said, “I know”.
We do know.  We hold the answers in us and many times we find them outside, especially in nature.
I saw this as the inner I and the outer I.
The outer I is the one I wish to be seen as so I try to behave as kind and helpful and creative.
         I see outside  the people I like to emmulate and learn from.  The inside I can be somewhat introverted, moody, frustrated or impatient with myself.  This “I” needs a lot of quiet time to listen to that still voice within.. much of the time through art – just being with myself.  
I do know.  I just need to make sure that internal I gets it’s fair share of time.

strange flight  
I looked at this from every angle.   Done Sat. evening after a long day of work and errands. Yes, life takes us on some interesting flights… passing through interesting territory, with interesting people.  Mostly people I love, like, get along with…. and then there are people that I cannot understand at all.  Not one tiny bit!

A word spoken

The wheel turns forward

even in it’s return

it is new.


No going back.
