This week's Diva challenge seemed simple enough. Use stripes or border-like strings to create a Zentangle. I began the first one in a restaurant, waiting for some people to show up. As I saw them coming, I hurried up to finish the first section of the tile. Hurrying through a Zentangle is just not where it's at. However, moving forward is. So, as unhappy as I was about starting one so haphazardly, I knew I had to simply move forward from that point on. And so I did. Part of me wants to say that it's overworked but another part of me really doesn't care. It was fun to do and re-do and fill in and find places to rework. It was so much fun I had to do another. This time I felt more deliberate with each stroke, so the result was a little less complicated.
None of that really matters, though, as I felt my exercise was to move forward and that was all. I am grateful that this art form can allow us to move with any exercise we choose.
