This is the partially completed mandala about three weeks ago. It is now almost complete. On Sunday, the nuns will ceremoniously dismantle the mandala. They will disperse the sands into the Connecticut River at Charter Oak Landing in Hartford, a gesture signifying the impermanence of life. The public is invited to observe these rituals.
I have been away and my laptop died, so I have not looked at many other blogs recently. But, now I am back and I have a new laptop (a Mac, this time). If I can figure out how to use it, I will see you!
