All Things Beautiful...Through My Kaleidoscope

Welcome to my page of reflections on the mandala art of Henry Reed. Long ago, I envisioned my writing as viewing life through my looking glass…my kaleidoscope. I love the way the picture changes, with each turn of the scope. Yet, it’s always unique and beautiful. After long enjoying Henry’s mandalas in my daily email, I discovered that, beyond looking at the artwork, I was feeling prompted to write words from my heart regarding what was going on in my life. I began my own daily affirmations, or reflections…and posting them here, beginning in August 2009. ~ Nov. 13, 2011, Henry completed his 7th year -- 2,556 mandala paintings -- thus completing a circle. A new one begins. Hope you'll tune in to watch what develops in this blog space of Henry Reed, SusanGail and ATB ~ It's a journey of intuitive heart.

MANDALA ART BY HENRY REED FROM ARCHIVES OF THE DAILY MANDALA

Note to visitors of All Things Beautiful...

Below you will see my reflections on The Daily Mandala from the archives, beginning with Nov. 13, 2004...progressing gradually onward to Nov. 13, 2007, when Henry concluded his seven-year series. To see the newest mandalas, scroll down the archives...to where I first began the reflections in 2009. So, I've a long way to go before I sleep, in these mandala woods, so lovely, dark and deep!

The Daily Mandala: December 15, 2005



 Ribbons of time,
 swirling an imaginary May pole celebration,
remind me of the passing seasons, 
caught up in the winds of spirit,
yet entwined  in the beauty of eternity.

The Daily Mandala: December 14, 2005



 All things beautiful
 blossoming,  transforming, 
singing:  reverberating
 the colors of love
in my healing garden.

The Daily Mandala: December 13, 2005






'A butterfly may flit,
 but it gets the job done...'
said a friend. 
I took the message to heart,
I listened and then,
I knew that the beautiful part,
is always what I intend.

The Daily Mandala: December 12, 2005



Peace and light rise within me
as the eternal sun shines
 through the open door of my soul, 
warming my heart...the glow flowing,
empowering each cell of my being.

The Daily Mandala: December 11, 2005



Stitching together the remnants,
 spinning the yarn,
threading the needle,
creating...
a picture, a pattern, 
a path of possibilities.

The Daily Mandala: December 10, 2005



 Firing my passion, my heart sings
 a happy tune. Its burning brilliance
 fuels my creative mood...
inspiring, aspiring to play the
music, to write the words,
to walk the talk. ~ ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: December 9, 2005



 Midnight moon orbits, moving magic
across the dark night sky,
secluding my reverie, 
scrolling its artistry,
relentlessly... ~ATB ~
