Now, that's just where a girl wants to get her hair done, right?
The ice cream was awesome. No tangles.
Which brings me to my own tangles.
A while back, one of my blogger readers commented, and since she wasn't familiar, I followed her link back to her place. That's when I discovered ZENTANGLE.
I was so enthralled, I ran out and bought the "right" pen, and the "right" paper, and got to tangling.
Now, I am sure you can imagine that I am not the kind of person who sits still and watches TV. Even when it's on, I have to be doing something else. Usually knitting, or playing scrabble online, or reading.
But this is different.
This is pure fun, and no stress.
In fact, they call it "yoga for your brain."
I know, you're probably thinking .......she's doodling, should we tell her?
But it's so not the same.
From the zentangle website:
Creating Zentangle art provides a fun and lighthearted way to relax and intentionally facilitate a shift in focus and perspective. The Zentangle Method of creating art is unencumbered by dogma and cost which can weigh on other approaches. Nevertheless, it is sufficiently structured and organized so you can enjoy and benefit from an activity that otherwise might be considered whimsical.
Anyway, whatever it's called, can we say "hooked"???
It's so totally relaxing, that I forget the time, forget most everything else, and isn't that what relaxing is all about anyway????
If you want to know more, you can go to zentangle.com or tanglepatterns.com
I didn't buy the fancy kit, just went to Joann Fabrics, where I found the pens......as suggested on the Zentangle site......you can buy special paper also, but I just use a small watercolor notebook, and it works just fine.
I have already gotten another friend hooked, while I was on vacay.
So if you are wondering what I'm up to, besides walking, swimming, and generally soaking up the sun......I'm getting tangled.
Maybe that's what is making my head better. Anything is possible.
