Diva22: A Little Help From My (Best) Friend

I often feel a natural sense of gratitude in connection to Zentangle. I am always glad I found it, and awfully glad I am able to pick up a pen and appreciate what calm and loveliness each stroke brings.

The Diva's challenge this week was to "enlist the help of someone other than yourself who will draw the string on your tile or Zentangle Inspired piece". I enlisted my other half, Daved, and he did two for me. When I placed the two strung tiles in front of me, I was immediately filled with gratitude for this partner who performed this simple task with such love and respect. It's just a little piece of paper, but not. He knows that and I am grateful for that, too. 
  As so many beautiful things are blooming around me, I suppose it was natural to do these two tiles. They sort of burst forth from the pen. They are so similar, yet not. It's almost like one was continued from the other. Hmm...little pieces of art that went from one hand to another. What fun.
  Thank you Daved, Laura, and Peg (for finding Zentangle).
