My 100 days of isolation culminated in a beautiful colouring book - a project with 100-hand-drawn mandalas based on 100 words of encouragement that I received from all over the world.
It all started with a 29 day boat cruise holiday on the 21st of February 2020, and it turned into 100 days of isolation in a foreign country - Rome, Italy - when all the countries went into lockdown because of the covid-19 pandemic.
We were locked down in a very tiny cabin and then isolated in a hotel room in Rome for almost 100 days after we finally docked in Savona, Italy. It included a hair raising transfer to Rome by bus full of elderly, sick and coughing people. For stretched out days we waited in anticipation until we could eventually fly back to South-Africa.
Drawing mandalas and using all the therapy modalities I usually do with the children I see in art therapy, I could keep myself grounded and sane. It was essential in the small space with restricted movement.
The result after the ordeal is a mandala colouring book. It makes me feel very excited to be able to share the one thing that kept me busy while I longed for my family and friends during that uncertain time.
I stayed healthy while we were on the cruise and there were many of our fellow passengers that were not so lucky. I attribute this to all my friends and supporters’ braveness (?) encouragement and my focus on applying my therapeutic art therapy tools.
I am planning a coast to coast road trip in South-Africa in January 2021.
I would like to take the mandala drawings, with some fun and joy, to people on my journey all over the country. Through your support I will be able to share this special art form with the elderly, with children and with interested passerby’s. I would like to let as many people as possible experience the joy of colouring in mandalas - or even teaching them to draw their own.
