I can't wait until I have more time to peruse his website more closely and learn more about mandalas, Tibet, etc. I read Goldie Hawn's biography last year and she is a Buddhist and mentions how spiritual and freeing the 'religion' is in her book. (That is an excellent bio too by the way...she is really an incredibly strong woman.) This is my favorite mandala that I could see quickly (my computer is too slow to load all of them and I'm too impatient :-) I can't wait to find out what it means....gotta go!

Here are some ATC's that I made today for a swap with one of my internet groups. The theme is Texas, my home state, so I couldn't wait to whip these out! (I wish they weren't so blurry...I think I need to look into getting a new scanner.) Ya'll enjoy...

So... on the news this morning, they reported that soon the US might put in bike routes similar to those over in Europe (I think they said France), where you can just jump on a bike, ride it to where you need to go, then jump off and park it for the next person! Is that for real?!?!! That would be sooo awesome!
Here in my town close to Dallas, Texas, there is one (I repeat...ONE!) lady who rides a bike consistently around town doing her errands here and there. Everyone calls her the "crazy lady". Now...is that sad or what?! I would like to put a basket on the front of my bike and ride it everywhere I need to go but my kids have strictly forbid me to even THINK about it because heaven forbid, someone might see me! Hah....
Little do they know that hopefully soon...that will be the norm. I HAVE noticed more people riding their bikes and walking but still more for "fitness". I suppose that could be a good excuse to ride the bike down to wally-world to get milk...I could just carry a backpack instead of a pretty basket.
So, if any of you from other countries have any advice or comments, I would love to hear them and share them with my spoiled rotten children!

Love this painting found in "Art Teacher's Art" pool on Flickr. The pretty girl in the dress looks so cool existing among the abstract painting. Hmmm...I think this painting reflects how I feel about myself in the world. Interesting how when you look at something long enough it makes totally perfect sense!!
