I had the idea while creating this mandala about how we think of the mystery as dark, and well, mysterious. Because the Mystery is always with us, unexplainable and unknown, in a way it is a constant companion. Maybe we need to acknowledge this every now and then and bring it to Light.
The fennel blossoms I used to create this mandala grow in "disturbed places," according to the field guide I use.Most of us would only see it as a weed and not give it a second thought. Run your hand along the stems and your nose is filled with a yummy spicy aroma like licorice. What a gift that is, huh? A little aromatherapy right there in the alleyway.
But isn't it a mystery that such beauty can be found in such common locales? What ever was the creator thinking on this day of creation?
