Pure Therapy

I haven’t created anything in over a week– no writing, no art, no photography. I’ve been so overwhelmed at work and emotionally drained that I haven’t had any energy to do much. But I always feel better when I make a mandala. It’s very calming to me. So I made myself sit down tonight and make this one. However, even this image is filled with frenetic energy. But the act of making it was pure therapy. I’m posting it in the abbey because it feels safer in here.
