JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 234 :: zen and the art of tangles

28 Aug


I discovered zen! Or rather, the zen of detangling. Who knew it already had a name… and an art form… called Zentangles.

My friend Aimee had this book on the guest room bedside table when I visited her. It was curious and intriguing. I flipped through the pages and then put it down and promptly forgot about it.

Amazon Link: One Zentangle A Day: A 6-Week Course in Creative Drawing for Relaxation, Inspiration, and Fun (One A Day)

That was three weeks ago. But it keeps coming up in my head. And in conversation. I keep randomly talking about it.

So tonight I created one. Just for fun. It may not be awesome (Google “zentangle” to see some awesomeness) but it sure was calming.

And it fit so nicely right on my desk calendar square for the day. It has me thinking…. what if I drew a zentangle a day? Would it bring me bliss? Could I do it every day?

Could I? Would I? Would you?

More tomorrow.
