Continuations

This past weekend I had the awesome treat of tangling with some of my CZT buddies. Lesley Scott-Gillilan and Angie Gamble came from Indiana and joined Peg Farmer and myself for a little beading in the morning, and tangling in the afternoon. Our friend Denise also joined us at the shop for a bit of tangle time.
   I am so grateful for the chance to lay the bead shop details aside for just a little bit (as much as I love it!) and just make black lines on a white paper. Slow and easy... nothing to finish, nothing to produce, just lines on a paper. Sigh. Smile. Relax. What a treat.
   Even though I know that the practice of Zentangle is a relaxing stress reliever and just plain fun, it seems that in the past few months I need some other people to set the experiential stage to remind me of that. So thank you, ladies, for your little nudge that gently pushed me into a lovely afternoon.
   Below is what I started that day. I was headed absolutely nowhere with it (there is a string that didn't show up in the photo) and I still don't have any kind of vision for it. All I know is that I can come back to it any time I like. There are no light sources to recapture, no poses to recreate, just a big space of empty nothing to love and appreciate until some other marks come its way. To be continued...

PS: we are getting the tangle-a-day calendar printed soon... stay tuned.

  2. Yes, I know the feeling of not having to achieve anything, just tangle. And your result up to now is great.

  3. I have missed your tangles. I hope the bead shop is going well.
    I am especially happy to know the tangle a day calendar will be available before the end of the year. It's going to make some great Christmas presents.
