A meaningful and stressful Tuesday here. Never have I felt as conflicted over an election nor as frustrated over the lack of a decent candidate. I'm at a loss as to what is the right thing to do. I fear one much more than the other but if I vote for the one I fear less I'm also betraying myself and settling. The alternative parties do not offer anyone that is up to the job or has a chance of winning.
This morning I decided to work on a Mandala .. .. whenever I'm conflicted and at a loss my art will help to calm me.
At 4:30 am the coffee is a necessity !!
I didn't have a clue as to what the pattern would turn into...I just started drawing and then coloring.
All along I said I was going to vote for the Green party. Not that I thought the candidate would be a good president but the PARTY stood for things I believed in and that if they ever got enough votes they would at least have a chance at recognition on monetary support in the future.
As things have gone along in this most terrible of all campaigns I decided that I really had to vote for a mainstream candidate... settle for the lesser of two evils and then pray like I have never prayed before that whoever wins will be guided by forces that override them in what they stand for and do. It's the only chance we have as a nation . Neither candidate deserves to be our leader but one of them will be and we will have to live with it.
So here is my finished Mandala.
One of CENTERING and CONTEMPLATION.
A PRAYER for LIGHT & PEACE.
