Zentangle

Talent

Birdie competed in the Ohio State Fair Girl Scout talent competition on Saturday and so I’ve been thinking a lot about talent.  There were so many girls there sharing their gifts with us.  But, alas, in a competition, there can only be one winner, and so many little girls went away broken-hearted.  I only hope their loved ones were able to comfort them and give them the courage to try again.

I’m so glad Zentangle is not a contest.  I truly believe that if you can hold a pencil, you can do Zentangle.  My impromptu class yesterday was a perfect example.  I had two wonderful, talented ladies who came at the urging of a friend.  Neither thought they would be able to do it.  Check out what they accomplished.

My favorite moment was when one of the daughters took a look at her mom’s work and said in a stunned voice, “You did that? No way!”

So, my talented readers, keep tangling and amaze someone today.

PS – Birdie was not one of the brokenhearted 🙂
