i'm suddenly seeing slow progress in the wrist/arm/hand, with less pain. i was able to tangle a bit longer today. hurrah!
at first, i did a monotangle:
i did this in a pre-strung zentangle journal so i was following their string, which ran off the upper left-hand corner of the journal page.
after finishing--i thought--i headed out to a yoga class.
when i got home i looked again and wanted to fill in the rest of the string lines, which can be seen faintly on the page above.
so i did, with this result:
I like this better. it's not great, but it IS great to be able to tangle again. in fact, I am thrilled. I just hope not to "overdo," and set myself back.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
No immediate group classes scheduled (I'm open to hearing about a good venue in Western Massachusetts. I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.
Come and amaze yourself!
