    i’ve recently started coloring mandalas as a form of therapy. i’m bipolar and find it soothing. it’s a way to channel energy plus i love going back and seeing what i’ve done through use of color (i.e. what each color means and how i’ve used them on the mandala)… i love the idea of mandalas in nature and especially love the idea of mixing inspiration sayings with each mandala to give them more meaning. your book sounds wonderful. your pictures are amazing. good luck to you in this venture… warmly, stacey
    p.s. i chose to post on the daisy as they were my mother’s favorite flower and i lost her in feb of 2010… this one is beautiful…
