I got my hands dirty — well, paint-smeared — a couple of weeks ago at an art workshop in Laguna, and I went home with a wonderful work of art that I’d have never done if not for the guiding hand of mandala artist Jo Ellen Byrnes.

I find it calming to breathe slowly and hold a pose while watching a grisly crime case unfold.

Throughout the service they played long, flute-like instruments that bellowed in between chants. Scrolls with bright illustrations and an image of the Dalai Lama sat on the altar behind them.
