The Sand Dancer

Ephemeral art is one of life's special pleasures. Whether it is chalk on a sidewalk, a Navajo sand painting or Tibetan mandala, or just sand on the beach, the image is transitory. If you're lucky enough, you get to see the work from when it commences to when it disappears. Some people memorialize this ephemera with photography. National Geographic, for example, has had photo essays & stories on mandalas and sand paintings off and on over the decades.

My link today goes to a CBS news story about a man in Christchurch, New Zealand named Patrick Donnelly who is called "The Sand Dancer." Please enjoy seeing the video that clicking on the title will take you to. It's a delightful story.
