If It's Monday, It Must Be Monks

So, Cathy-on-a-Stick hung out in the Julia Thompson Smith Chapel on the Agnes Scott College campus, watching the monks from the Drepung Loseling Monastery do their thing. Namely, creating a sand painting (called a mandala). Those monks were so focused on the task at hand, they didn't even notice a pic-on-a-stick, sneaking in to take a look. But did I get a pic of the monks with your favorite pic-on-a-stick?

C'mon, people. There are some things even Cathy-on-a-Stick won't do. (But she thought about it.)

Here's a few photos of the monks, deep in sand and creation:
Visit their monastery, if you're in the Atlanta area. (Yes, the Atlanta area. Who knew? Now, you do! Tons of details at


  1. Easily distracted, the Monks soon started their NEW projct, "Monks in the Sand On a Stick."

  2. Hahahahaa!

    I was a nervous wreck, watching those monks. My nose itched with a billion sneezes, I experienced vertigo, and had an urge to yell, "Boo!"

    It was free, too! But I'd pay to see "Monks in the Sand on a Stick."

  3. Soon followed by Joey's latest original tune, "Monks I See In The Room."
