"Pandemania Day 25, Recursive Blooming-Mandala 041020." Good Friday. Another busy day within the house. I met on of my daughter’s at Safeway. We had a distanced shopping experience and she received her homemade Matzo Ball soup. The Safeway line moved quickly. We hopped from one red square to the next like a board game. Yesterday, I photographed a bulging iris bud and it was on my mind all day. It looked like a cocoon ready to burst. I could almost see it writhe and twist. On my late afternoon walk, I rushed to find it. It was fully open. I wonder if it would have been possible to witness its unfolding… Today’s mandala revisited yesterday's iris bud images in an attempt to chase the mystery. Note: Each Pandemania Series Mandala is accompanied by a journal entry that serves as its statement.
