As the first one, I wasn’t too impressed, but I’ll keep learning.
I bought this book on a 6-week zentangling course last September. At the time, I didn’t have an apartment, so all my things were in storage, and I was staying at my boyfriend’s apartment indefinitely. My mind and focus were all over the place, so I promised to zentangle my way to peace once I found my own place. I googled and drooled over zentangle supplies, but was in no position to spend $30+ on fancy paper, so it simply didn’t happen until a couple of weeks ago. My mom had been sending me photos of her daily tangles and I decided the time had come for me too. I still don’t have the specific tiles one is supposed to zentangle on, but I decided to inaugurate one of my (many) sketchbooks to start small and slow.
Someone very close to me tells me I need to meditate and learn patience. As someone whose least favourite part of yoga is the cool down and meditation at the end, I find it impossible to sit with eyes closed in one place for more than 3 seconds. So, I’ve decided I will use my daily zentangling as my meditation and lesson on patience. I haven’t been very diligent about doing this everyday, but I try. Wish me luck.
