Cicada Mandala June 12 2015
Where I live, a special brood of cicadas recently emerged after living 13 years underground. Thirteen!
Given this hero's journey, it's no wonder that cicadas are symbols of hope, resilience, and new beginnings. You see now why I had to make this wing mandala1.
No cicadas were harmed in the making of this mandala. After meeting their fates at the paws of nature, they leave behind only these wings2 to admire.
