Whenever i listen to podcasts, (unless i'm taking notes!), I usually doodle with Sharpies on glossy photo paper. This is far from perfect, but it's very meditative for me to be repeating the same patterns.
...add a bit of colour...
...and presto - a quasi-mandala. :-)
I'm not sure if this would qualify as an official "mandala" but i had fun doing it and it took me about 30 minutes - the same amount of time as the podcast i was listening to.
And for the record, no, i am not an overachiever, making use of every waking minute of the day.
There are times where i just sit & do nothing, and i'm ok with that. :-)
Happy Friday everyone!
