Day 1: Resting in Darkness
Interestingly, I cannot quite follow directions and paint an entirely black or very dark circle. My thoughts lead me to the regenerative spirit of darkness. Where there is regeneration, there is not an absence of color, maybe an absence of imagination. Or that may be quite arrogant! I am reminded that Jesus rested in the darkness from Friday to Sunday. Between life and life again. As I was painting, I almost felt the darkness coming alive and looking at me as an old crone looks with inquiry onto the world.

Journey with me through a creative experience over the next bit where I use mandalas and a specific exercise in "The Mandala Workbook" by Fincher. This is Day 1, Resting in the Darkness.
