In spite of these failings, I feel strongly that everyone needs some type of creative outlet! As much as my job brings it's own satisfactions and rewards, it's not creative and I can feel the atrophy setting in to my poor, under-used, creative left-brain. Which is why I am so excited that my friend/ambulance partner/fellow blogger Erin at The Bright Owl is teaching a local zentangle class next week. What is zentangle you might ask? Erin answers that question (here), explaining it much better than I ever could- she is a certified zentangle teacher after all! But, to sum it up, zentangling basically consists of using a series of repeating patterns to create a picture. No, it's not doodling. It's a bit more methodical and precise than that. Check out one of Erin's "tiles." So beautiful!
