These monthly calendars are a gift from me to remind you of your heart’s connection to the Earth. They’re free, downloadable for your desktop or your (actual) wall. I usually post these calendars the first day or two of each month. Please download them for your personal use — you can print the calendar if you prefer, or make it your computer wallpaper. There is also one for iphones. Please tell your friends these are available. Thank you! May you always feel loved.
Even when Nature is putting on her less-brilliant winter colors, there is color if you know how to look. When the rain comes, go outside with your eyes and your camera — take a closer look at the subdued landscape and you’ll see a tapestry of brilliant colors. Here’s something I might have missed if I hadn’t been looking where I was stepping today.
Anyone can make a mandala from natural objects collected wherever you are. Our family made 7 Ocean Mandalas, using materials we found along the shore of Vancouver Island near Bowser. Just think of your design as playing with circles, symmetry, concentric rings, the four directions, or a big pie (yummmm!) Start setting out your mandala from the center (or you can mark out the boundary of your circle and work in) and see where your imagination and creativity take you. This is a fun activity for parents and kids of all ages.
