The mandala, centered around a center point, has been associated with religion and meditation for centuries. One aspect of designing a mandala not only in a landscape, but also at the beach, is the challenge of creatively using the phase between low and high tide, working concentrated, and then letting it go and handing it over to the waves.

“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.” Margaret Atwood
