After two field work days that happened to be two of the coldest days of my life, I decided to stay in this Sunday. I was i upstate NY for work, it was about 25 degrees and with the windchill it felt like 18 degrees. When I got back to the city and felt the 40 degree temperatures, the difference was amazing. The city felt absolutely balmy in comparison to the interior parts of the state.
After those tiring days, I decided to stay in on Sunday and do these patterns. Nothing clears my mind and calms me as much as doing mendhi on my own hands.
I have been really into mandalas and extensive circular patterns. They look great on the center of the hands (both sides); the symmetry is perfect. One can keep continuing the design, making the mandala bigger and bigger (unless of course he/she is working on a smaller hand).
Recently I've been obsessed with filling up the fingers with moroccan patterns. They are a bit more difficult to do but the results are worth it. Wouldn't you agree?
I'll be adding pictures and commentary of the things I love. I am an ordinary person in an extraordinary place. There is no special purpose to this blog other than to project what I am thinking of at any given moment.
