The Double Mandala

dbl_mandala_drawnDrawn by hand and assembled on April 8, 2016. Of this my friend, Carol, wrote, “That horizontal section seems to be waiting to be filled in.” Just so. Here the rayed quatrefoil—encircled, transcendent—touches, informs, and shapes the here and now. It has been twenty years since my dream of four circles coming together to create the quatrefoil and of four lines that radiated from the center point toward the four corners of the world. At the end of the dream the lines within the boundary of the quatrefoil faded, leaving an empty space, the crucible in which the long work comes and goes.

I have at hand a cup of coffee and I believe I will call the space of the rest of my days The Mandala Café.
