In Loving Memory of the Black Dog

The kind dog Molly's mandala, Copyright Shastina only of The Mandala Group, July 2011
This mandala is in loving memory of a black Labrador, who was full of fun, friendship and made everyone smile so much.  I have tried to express the essence of the joy in her nature, in the mandala and I've put in a black flower to represent her colour and maybe her early death as well. She was full of fun!

Every life's a circle

If life's a circle, then I wonder, whereabouts in the circle is everyone?  And if each life is a circle, how can we tell which pattern matches each one of us? 

If every life is a circle then it's duration is predestined by the circumference of that circle. Then a mandala can be formed within this and the pattern within this becomes the essence of that life's mandala.  Although some die early and some die late, they all travel their own journey, circling the centre and within and around the varied pattern, unique to them. 

If a loved one be taken away, be it a pet, such as a beloved dog or cat, or a friend or relative, is there any comfort in the thoughts ~ everyone lives out their own unique mandala, be it long or short and everyone has lived out their own circle and their own mandala, in their own time?
