The variety in nature is overwhelming (and beautiful at the same time.) I see varieties in species, styles of cooking, materials—the potential variety in this list alone could be too much for me. I find a relief, a cleansing, in forming HeartPatternsTM such as the Heart Mandalas. TM When I draw a particular heartflower, I am immediately faced with choices. I have to make one decision at a time about which angle or color to use for my next step. This is a lot to ask of me, because I see a lot of options at once. But these are just illustrations, so I can stress less and face the challenge, one heart at a time.
Thank goodness I can self publish books and show a few of my many designs that are available for licensing. Check out the latest books that you can buy through Amazon!

Luckily, the technology has allowed me to produce thousands of illustrations, almost as many as I can think. I don’t have to limit myself to one decision. What a relief.
I can even organize them. I am compelled to organize and categorize them. I must reflect as many variations as possible, and in the order that they relate. Sometimes one design relates to several, like a species that begins several new subspecies. And so the need to make small, but manageable decisions continues. These HeartMandalas are a reflection of nature. And they are a product of it. This is yet another way we are all connected.
I am so fortunate for these Heart Mandalas, fortunate that I can create them. I love that I can face the variety and organize it. It’s therapeutic. I love practicing making small decisions that don’t alter life as we know it. And yet they reflect the beauty and the challenges and the harmonies all around.
I HeartMark You!
