In a turmoil filled week, with my mind and soul screaming, trying desperately to still the fear and urge to flee,
I found a bit of peace at the Mark Twain Library.
Tibetan monks began creating a world peace mandala Wednesday morning that measures 4 feet x 4 feet. The Tibetan singing/chanting of prayers during the opening ceremony were soothing and began to quieten my soul.
I stopped by at opening Thursday morning to see how much of the mandala had been created Wednesday afternoon,
and to watch and be mesmerized by the process and sound of bone rubbing against metal funnel.
Yesterday found me back at the library, this time with my daughters who were equally fascinated.
Progress is definitely being made.
