Another gift from the universe

It's wonderful when I do not even market a class and people email me - "I got your name from the Zentangle website and want to know if you teach classes." 

Last week that is what happened, and since my friend Dee always offers a space at the Howard County Holistic Center if the activity room is free, Sally and Wendy gratefully attended.  They have both been furiously doing Zentangle on their own without real direction, and were overjoyed to understand the process and realize where they can take it.

I am grateful for their interest and am grateful to send more students out with the knowledge of the true meaning and awesomeness of that which we call Zentangle.

Different perspectives

Recently I flew from East to West across this beautiful earth... and I believe it was the first time there were no clouds to obscure the view.  The feeling of seeing Monument Valley and some of the Grand Canyon from 38K feet is not something that can be put into words.  The mid-west was also a source of inspiration, because even with snow everywhere from Baltimore to the Rockies, the patterns we have carved and those that are naturally there still showed up.  It reminded me of a Zentangle ensemble.
I also had the opportunity to share the Zentangle process with some interested people, AND took the time to play...
