And now, as The Diva herself said:

AND NOW!!
Weekly Challenge #233: "New Official Tangle - Zenith"


Just a few of the thoughts I had before, during and after:

  • Neat new pattern "Zenith" - easy peasy, it will be so beautiful as a Zendala.
    • Whoops, what did the step out say - "Even though the strokes on this tangle are simple, we encourage you to tangle it a few times. "
  • Run away, run away!!
  • There are no mistakes - keep going, it will be beautiful.
  • Wipe out!
  • Lakota Tribal Wisdom - "When you find yourself riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount"
  • Really DuHdley, you can draw a 3rd abnormal form of Arukas;  it will be beautiful.
So here it is folks, my commitment to keep going, there are no mistakes, to the meditation practice and the beautiful art form of Zentangle, and (shudder) to sharing.

Be happy, be well

  2. Hello seriously old guy, I just had to go back and read through quite a few posts after I read that and had a little giggle to myself. Your work is lovely and you are, I think, too modest. Your explorations of the patterns are inspiring and I intend to go back and look at them in more detail. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you Margaret. I especially relate to your use of the word "explorations". I am not a habitual person and often say I hate to do the same thing twice, so the whole Zentangle adventure is an exploration and I especially like to explore the different possibilities of each pattern.

    1. Thanks Antonine. Hey, how about a coaster; it'd make people think they were already toasted?
