What is tattoo Tuesday about?

May 12, 2020

Although traditionally regarded as a symbol of  Eastern religions such as Tantric Buddhism, Shintoism, and Jainism,  mandalas (mandala = circle in Sanscrit) are found in many cultures, such as Mesoamerican, Native American, and Scandavian, among others.

In addition, mandalas have been adopted by some modern western people as a symbol of wholeness or the universe.

In his autobiography, psychologist Carl Jung wrote, “I sketched every morning in a notebook a small circular drawing, … which seemed to correspond to my inner situation at the time. … Only gradually did I discover what the mandala really is: … the Self, the wholeness of the personality, which if all goes well is harmonious.”

Mandalas can be beautiful and striking in design which, no doubt adds to their appeal.

A little inspiration for Monday

May 11, 2020

“Come, my friends,
T’is not too late to seek a newer world,
Push off, and sitting well in order,
Smite the sounding furrows,
For my purpose holds,
To sail beyond the sunset,
And the baths of all the western stars,
Until I die.”

-Tennyson
