Marvelous Moon

For me, the words
"marvel-
ous" and
"moon" go hand in hand. My daughter's first name means
"like the moon" and her middle name means "marvelous", in Swahili. So, this week's creative prompt - "Faces" - at Inspire Me Thursday was the perfect opportunity to share the face of my Marvelous Moon mandala. Her face is pretty cool to me, and...she has a mystical feel...like she's rolling along in space, sight-seeing the universe and in awe of it all. I suspect I'll glance at her one day and I'll hear volumes of insight. Her journey is indeed a marvelous one...just "like the moon".

You described your moon face so well! It has depth and vastness, and the colors are like the mysterious night sky full of stars.

Oh Cheryl, your Marvelous Moon is beautiful! She's full of mystery and motion, and at the moment I'm imagining floating through the universe with her, collecting fabulous stories and bits of wisdom. I'm so glad to see more of your mandalas!

She is beautiful! I love it when the moon shines through my bedroom window onto my bed and I can go to sleep in the light. Feels magical somehow.

Wenda said...

I forgot to mention how you've inspired me to get back to creating my own mandalas. I look forward to seeing more of yours.
