Striping moments

Here is a recent Zentangle with the pattern 'Striping'... a very basic one to learn.

It reminds me of simple or white, yes or no, one or the other... rather than so many shades of gray.  However, I remember years ago I answered a long questionnaire for a dating service (I actually did stuff like that???!!!) and was quite perturbed when neither answer on either side of the spectrum fit my point of view.

Hmmmmm, I wonder....does that mean I am too 'middle of the road'?  That I do not take a firm stand for something but rather waver on the outskirts of either choice?

The Zentangle process for me combines it all... choice of this one or that, deliberate strokes, yet no plan defined since patterns will end up anywhere on the tile.

Just like my life.... choices and one step at a time, not knowing what the outcome will look like.  

Found this photo and quote by Albert Einstein ... talks about simple.... hmmmm...

A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. Everything should be as simple as it is, but not simpler.
