I try not to delve into dark things here because well they are dark and the world is depressing enough. Yesterday there was a posting on Facebook from Crochet Crowd about a crochet designer who took her own life. I never heard of her but still it is sad that one felt they could no longer live with the demons in their head. My mom's neighbors daughter-in-law took her life over the weekend for the same reason. Our beloved weatherman Don Harman took his life a couple years ago for the same reason.
The article is here to peruse if you wish: http://www.crochetconcupiscence.com/2015/06/mandalasformarinke-crochet-project-in-memory-of-wink-from-a-creative-being/
They are asking for each of use to make a mandala and send it in. Read the article to see what will happen after they receive all the manadalas. I have decided to participate and use this pattern: http://www.acreativebeing.com/2013/04/24/i-love-holland/
