As i type this on Sunday afternoon, one of my best friends is getting ready to have a baby in her home... and i'm getting ready to go over to be at the birth. It's pretty crazy, and pretty exciting.
So, it will be a quick post today.
Many people deal with issues of imbalance or asymmetry in their lives, which can cause stress or pain in various levels in our bodies. CZT Sandy Bartholomew has very articulately coined the phrase, "Yoga For the Brain", and the more i practice Zentangle and the more i practice Yoga - i really find this to be true.
Yoga is very calming and can bring a feeling of inner peace, but it can also be challenging and physically strenuous. Zentangle can have the same effects... as we've seen through some of these challenges.
In Yoga, when you are doing a series of poses, it's always important to do each sequence on both sides of the body, to keep it in balance.
So, as in yoga, we will strive to find balance by countering last week's Straight Lines with curves.
Challenge #15: Love your Curves, Baby.
I realize that not all of the participants are ladies, but men, you can appreciate a good curve, can't you?
|Click to Enlarge|
This week you are challenged to use only curved lines. A curved string paired with curved tangles and curved lines... explore how this challenge makes you feel after last weeks angles and straight lines.
I'm off to the birthing pool!
My bestie gave birth to an absolutely gorgeous little girl last night. She was amazing, and beautiful, and full of magic. One of the most amazing experiences in my life to attend a water birth and to hold her hand while she and her fabulous husband brought their little daughter into the world. I am TRULY in awe.
If you have a blog, add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here)
Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;)
If you don't have a blog but still want to participate, you can email your tile to me and i will post it here. (See the contact tab above for my email address)
The deadline for each weekly challenge is Saturday night so that i can round everyone up by Sunday. What this means is that i will stop adding tiles to the slideshow on Sunday. You're still more than welcome to do the challenges and add your name to the linkey machine.
I will be more diligent with the linkey machine - by editing out the ones that don't work, the doubles, the links that lead to nowhere, the links that go just to blog home pages (this is why we need those site specific urls), and the spam. And there is some spam. :(
