For two days I was filming the making of a mandala. It was not a very enjoyable work: as I have the tripod on my desk, it’s legs limited the movement of my book (the book being quite large and stuck between the said legs), so I had to twist and turn, even to get up in order to circle around. Consequently, it did not turn as precise as it usually does and made me quite a bit anxious, which was definitely not what I was going for. In addition, by the end of the video I accidentally deleted 3 clips, so I did not capture the whole process. I was surprised actually that the video is quite good, due to time lapse you cannot see me hesitating and my hand shaking, so I am pleased with the result. Have a look, it is less than 7 minutes long (I dislike long videos).
I stayed home again the whole day today. It’s freezing outside and I don’t feel like going anywhere. I am sick of the cold and I wish the temperature would rise above zero to melt this ice for at least a couple of days. This is making me almost depressed. Tomorrow morning I have to go to the court, I was called as a witness in some process my landlord is having with the municipality, I don’t even know what it is about. You can imagine that I am thrilled about having to go… So, I am trying to take deep breaths and say to myself that it will all be over quickly and that no introverts will be harmed in the process. It’s not really working… I am very nervous.

Thank you so much for going to the effort of recording a video. As someone who lacks the patience and dexterity to produce a decent mandala, I really appreciated the opportunity to see you at work and witness how you approach it. You are so confident with putting down the marks. I love the way you mix blocks of colour with doodle details too.
I hope your day went well 🙂
A very professional video I enjoyed watching, I’ve used YouTube also on many of my Posts, such a good tool I’m surprised more people don’t try to use, my Channel gets absolutely zero views lol but it’s good for blogging etc.
