Happy Birthday Jake!

A mandala for Jake.
I read in Jill Badonsky's Awe-Manac that today is George Washington Gale Ferris' birthday.. the inventor of the Ferris wheel.. That just so happens to be my son's last name..
and it's Valentine's Day.
Reflecting on it, I'm reminded of the wheel of life and all the stages we go through.
A medicine wheel of sorts.
I used the cup as the holder here. Cups are emotions.
Hearts for each stage in life.. because all that matters is that we take love along for the ride.
Through the ups and downs in life, it is the only thing that makes it worth it.
Love. Share it. Receive it.
Fill your cup with it.
Drink it in.
I LOVE YOU!

Beautiful mandala and expression.
I rode on a ferris wheel recently. Wonderful perspective to see the world from.
And on yours, in that beautiful blue I can feel that love is in the air. May it reach to all!
