When it’s cold, very cold, there’s this lovely thing that happens on windows some times…frost, poetically known as fern frost for the fern-like tendrils that meander across the window.  I’ve been photographing these lovely designs lately and thought they might be interesting source for mandalas.

These mandalas remind me of this quote by the author T. A. Barron, “Every piece of the universe, even the tiniest little snow crystal, matters somehow. I have a place in the pattern, and so do you.”

I wish you all holidays filled with wonder and peace!
