Some food is arranged on round trays in the form that reminds me of a mandala.

ah...now you have me craving sushi!

it reminds me of the lovely chicken salad mold made for me by a genteel southern lady who invited me to lunch at her home after reading an article about my artwork in the local paper. this good woman had decorated the chicken salad with nuts and fruit to make it look like a mandala. it was a masterpiece...and oh so delicious!

blessings, S.
