A new chapter in the Life of Jane


Yet another snow day and I finally have time to do some creating and start a blog so I can share my creations. Phew! It might take me time to figure all of this out, but here I go.

I wanted to join in on the Zentangle challenges and really felt that I should get a blog going. Today I created the "Breathe" challenge. I had nice music from Pandora going (zen garden radio), had to get my handy dandy magnifier ready since my eyes tend to get angry if I don't, got out a new tile, and began. Breathe. It was easy to concentrate on my breathing since the magnifier moved with my breath. I started with a string of a nose and moved the air in and out of it. The breath in circles the heart then down to the belly. In and out. In and out. I got so relaxed that I was beginning to fall asleep by the end of it. Perhaps I get too relaxed.

  1. Wow, you accomplished a lot today! Welcome to the world of Blogging and the fascinating world of zentangles too! Your tile represents the idea of this challenge well, I can almost hear you breathing. Will look forward to seeing more of your work as these challenges continue.

  10. Thanks, Jane for your nice comment on my post. I can't get to the USA before September. So I'll be going to the CZT in October (Rick is getting back to me when they have dates organised). Wish I was coming in May... or even February! But I have to do some serious saving up to afford the trans-Pacific airfares. [wry grin]
