Remember as a kid, scribbling with colored crayon,
then covering it with black crayon or paint, then
scratching through the black to make colored
patterns? It is every bit as rewarding as an adult.
Go. Try it.
And take a big whiff of that heavenly smell while
you're at it.

mandala. It is a luxury to sit with a pen in hand
for an entire hour to see what comes out on the paper.

I forced myself to be patient and draw this. I have had
a hectic week and sitting still has been very difficult.
Working on this yearlong project has given me the gift
of seeing the benefits of sitting still long enough, and
doing enough work, to achieve a result. The result
