Sending the zeros 0000000000000

It's already week #5 in The Diva's Challenge. As they say, "Time flies when...."
    Laura's post about how she came to this week's challenge is very interesting. It really shows the power of our own intuition. There are signs and symbols all around us everyday that guide us to just the place we need to be. Some days we are aware, and other days, they may float right by us. 
   As I began my tile using orbs (hardly a challenge, as I love them so much; it's my 'go-to' shape when I get stuck), I was thinking about her story. I then realized that as I created the orbs, they were feeling like zeros. In my own personal little stash of symbols, the zero represents for me, a place of neutrality and calm. My other half and I often say to each other: 'Send me some zeros." Meaning, send with me all your calm and neutral intent. We usually say this when one is to embark on a particularly trying endeavor.
   Laura had a trying week and the circles had special meaning for her. I found it really amazing that Laura was calling for us to send her some zeros. What a magical world.
   Here are my zeros, Laura (and anyone else who could use some calm!).

  4. This is when the zeroes really add up to something special! I love your story of the zeroes bringing calm... perhaps a little healing too. Beautiful interpretation of this challenge.

  7. I just noticed on your first tile that your string of zeros forms a heart! (open at the bottom) Was that intended or is it a surprise?
