In Zentangle, we talk about the elegance of limits. When recovering from surgery, you live that. There was so much was I unable to do for myself the first few days at home. I was told 2-week recovery, and it’s just over a week, so I’m not there yet. But, I am on my way. Thank you all for your prayers and well-wishes.
I am happy to report that once again I can tangle without falling asleep mid-stroke. I often joke in my classes that Zentangle is the only meditation I can do without falling asleep. Well, not last week.
To avoid this, I tangled using a scratch art kit I had lying around. The family was worried about me having a sharp object, but no accidents. And, when you fall asleep with the stick in your hand, it doesn’t make a mark.
Another limit I found was that once I was lying comfortably, I was not going to move just to get the pen or tile I wanted. I don’t feel up to sharing many of those attempts, including the Zentangle meditation challenge pieces. More falling asleep issues.
But, here are a few of the others I did using this week’s Betweed challenge. LOVE Betweed, but never think about using it. So happy it is part of the Diva challenge this week.
Wow! Writing this post took so much energy. I’m off to take a nap. Look for more tiles next week as Zentangle is now my primary ‘pain medecine.’
