I just want to give a little credit to some of the other inspirational and helpful Tanglers, including Suzy Mosh for her weekly "That's New To Me Challenge", Adele Bruno, for "It's a String Thing", Chris Titus for Square One on Facebook, Genevieve Crabe and Linda Farmer for their tangle catalog and website, and excellent superstar Tanglers like Michelle Beauchamp, Lily Moon, Margaret Bremner, Sandy Hsaio, Helen Williams, Cris Letourneau, and many more (sorry to those I forgot to mention, but whom I love just the same) who share their wonderful Zentangle work with all of us through the magic of the internet. For those of you who are not yet collecting pensions, you may not know the internet was not always around! Without these connections, I know I would never have found Zentangle at all. It would be my great loss, to say the least.
That said, I now move on to say that for most of the northern hemisphere, summer is on the wane and things are cooling down, but here in Arizona, it is still just HOT! We may have seen the last of the 110+ degree days, but that is the best I can say now. Still, this is better than frozen windshields, digging my car out from a snowbank, heart-stopping temperatures of -25 degrees, and endless dirty slush in the spring. (Chicago, you know who you are!) I know which evil I choose! So to all the rest of you, enjoy those last warm days and also enjoy my old favorite season, Autumn! Apples and pumpkins and crispy mornings, cozy sweaters and fond memories of burning leaves (all against municipal code now in most places, sad to say) and that first night the heat kicks on. Chicago, I miss you for that!
OK, enough chatter. Down to the business of the week. It was a pretty fun week in the Zentangle community. The Diva challenges us to use the newest official tangle, Zenith. I was privileged to encounter this at CZT 19, the second class to receive this one. It is one of those that looks like not much until you start playing around with it Wow, I have seen some great interpretations out there! Here is my take of the day on it.
Thank you all for stopping by this week! Know that I appreciate and cherish all your comments and insights.
Until next time,
