Footprints in the sand

I dreamed that I was walking down the beach with the Goddess. And I looked back and saw footprints in the sand. But sometimes there were two pairs of footprints and sometimes there was only one. And the times there was only one set of footprints, those were my times of greatest trouble. So I asked the Goddess,
"Why in my greatest need did you abandon me?"
She replied, "I never left you. Those were the times we both hopped on one foot."
And I was really embarrassed for bothering Her with such a stupid question...

Wow -Peace Mandalas

Combining street painting, Tibetan sand Mandala Construction & the longing to instill the symbolic meaning of the rainbow into viewers’ hearts & minds, artist Dean Edward Mulroy have been creating stone mandalas throughout Scotland, England and Ireland. His artworks evoke the best of street painters & production of anonymous monks.

I noted earlier today on the many Mandala resources available on the web. Look below for the many links about sand Mandalas & sculptures
