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.


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 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: November 5, 2005

Morning Wake-up!!
Roll up your sleeves, flash those eyes.
Set your intention...guided by
synchronicity and wonderful
surprise. ~ATB ~

The Daily Mandala: November 4, 2005

Purple giraffes make me laugh, 
zany though they are.
Imagine the fun of them
 climbing from rung to rung,
and then, peering way down below
 them, oogling us all from afar.

The Daily Mandala: November 3, 2005

The song of morning light thrills my heart, transforming darkness into joy.
All is well and beautiful.
All is peace and praise...
for the still, small voice that remembers,
for the love that stirs a kindness,
for the grace that walks beside me,
through the woods and fields to home.
