This amazing woman came into my studio in Lafayette, Colorado and asked for a henna design with marigolds to honor her ex-husband's passing. We took a moment to set intentions and I knew she would be reminded of these every day as she looked at her design. Henna is soothing to the nerves and can be a wonderful treatment during a time of grief. Later she wrote: "Flower of life and death radiating energy of love, of remembrance. A focal point of transition and transformation, transmutation of source. A beautiful reminder to enjoy the beauty that is, right now, for everything is temporary. I am here now. I am alive. I am love."
