10 years ago meets Mandala #24 on Bodhi Day 2016 and they listen to John Trudell
Ten years ago this morning I began blogging, taking a new direction in my life, having found myself going in circles that were getting smaller and smaller. My plan was to post a 40-year retrospective of my art work, one day at a time. I was wondering if I would ever be able to do any art work again. I was unemployed and unemployable.
Now I have been self-employed since August 2015.
On December 4 of this year, I completed "Mandala #24: For Kael," from a series that I started in September 2014, which was when the desire to create returned and has remained to this day. In the center of my most recent mandala is a photo of a man flying through the air on a snowboard. He is the son of a friend of mine.
It was a year ago on Bodhi Day, December 8, that John Trudell died. Today I am again grateful for John Trudell's voice with its healing message of survival against all odds. I am grateful for the blog friends who have shared these years with me.
