step8: 3 (yellow) suns with a black cat silhouette.
I tried to use as much symbols from the first mandala. And in the first mandala I used 4 black cats, which represented Pommy. Arja's first cat, who brought us together.
Can you believe we met about 20 years ago, in Bangkok?! In the crew bus I overheard her talking about a cat she just got from the shelter, so I turned around and screeched What Pommy?! She was surprised I knew the cat. At that time I worked in the animal shelter of Zierikzee as a volunteer.
It turned out we lived 5 minutes apart from each other! Both in small insignificant villages in the south of Holland . What a coincidence! We agreed to have coffee some day once we were back home again.
That's how our friendship started.
Now I live in Zierikzee and Arja just bought a house here and will move to Zierikzee this summer.
This proves how small the world is! The meet your neighbor and friend on the other side of the world.
