I have to be honest. At first I saw a Jeep. After a few blocks, I noticed the black tire against the yellow paint. And when we rolled to a stop at the light, I was grabbing my phone to take a photo, because what arose for me was the graceful beauty and lines of this most practical, functional mandala. For that’s what it is, you know. A mandala.
I’m grateful, today, for beauty in strange places! This practical, functional, essential thing (a tire, no less!) with such graceful lines and an almost lotus-like design is as much of a mandala as any painstakingly created work of art.
There is wonder to be had everywhere I go and, for this, I am eternally grateful.
