Sheep leap 9.24.2013

Missed the sheep when they feasted at Decatur Cemetery in September? You’ve got a second chance to meet them, this time in the Oakhurst Greenspace just south of Agnes Scott College.

“Meet the Sheep” is scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, December 3 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. The sheep should be around for four or five days, depending on how quickly they eat invasive species like kudzu and Chinese privet.

More info can be found on the Trees Atlanta website.

We were fortunate to be able to attend the Clsoing Ceremony of the Mandala Sand Painting at Agnes Scott this morning. Sand painted Mandalas are used as tools for re-consecrating the earth and its inhabitants. To construct the Mandala, millions of grains of sand are painstakingly laid into place on a flat platform over a period of days or weeks. This one at Agnes Scott was done by the Tibetan Monks in four days. When finished, the Mandala is destroyed to symbolize the impermanance of all that exists. The colored sands are swept up and poured into a nearby river or stream, where the waters carry the healing energies throughout the world.
