Last night I tuned into Tangle Time with Amy Kan CZT and was delighted to see that she was using the tangle "Gotta Go" in her Sunday night practice. I love this tangle and can't imagine why I don't use it more often.
Since I knew I'd done it before, I looked back through my work and discovered I'd last used it as a tangle in 2015 (see below). As far as I know.
I don't think I've done it since, especially as I don't tend to do grid-based tangles.
This is just one reason I enjoy learning from other CZTs--if I'm practicing with someone who likes grid-based tangles, then I'm forced to do one too, and I need the prod. And it's fun! Here was the 2015 version I did in an old "Tangle-a-Day" calendar, with the tangle creator's name, Lianne Woods, on the left side:
I really have to remember to use this one more; it's got so many possibilities.
Out of practice means out of mind.
This applies to meditation, as well. Except with meditation, if I neglect practice, I am IN the mind 100% of the time, rather than being mindful. Better to know the difference between being in/of the mind, and recognizing that the mind is in me.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), a long-time meditator, a certified meditation teacher and coach, and focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
