It was Mah Jongg insanity at a tournament held this afternoon at a local temple. The temple auditorium (this was only half of it) was a terrific venue. 58 people attended and played! I was simply a volunteer, known as a "Maj Minion," there to register participants and assist in any way possible. I don't play well enough to even think about being in a tournament myself (too new to the game to know what I'm doing).
The height of Mah Jongg fashion. I spotted this and immediately whipped out my camera, and then got permission from the wearer (I don't know what I would have done had she refused me).
The front of the same lovely lady. A Mah Jongg cruise? I love it. We all have our obsessions. Guess this is no different from a painting cruise or rug hooking cruise. Must have been fun!
The fearless tournament organizer. She did a fabulous job.
My two wonderfully patient teachers. Trust me; they need a saintly amount of patience to get the concepts through my head.
Who knows if I will stick with this, but it's been fun so far and today was a riot!
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.
