I felt the need to work with bright colour with an emphasis on orange, which I have always considered a healing colour. Next came oak leaves, making the core of this mandala healing and a provider of strength. I have really enjoyed working on this mandala.
This morning, my book order arrived. Lots of poetry for inspiration but also, 'The Secret Life of Trees' by Colin Tudge. I have been wanting to read this book ever since I read Elizabeth's review of it at Luchair .
It was a real pleasure to finish off the mandala this morning in Lynnes book while considering which book to read first. To top it all off, my silk order also arrived along with some angora and cashmere.
An energising start to the day xJ
