I am amazed at how well Ben is healing. Sorry for the p*rno-esque shot but I wanted to show how the bruising is all but gone and the wound is pretty much sealed. He woke up this morning 'Mr Zippy'. He's been sore and sick to his stomach all week, but seems to have turned the corner. It's going to be a difficult few weeks of trying to keep his body down and calm when his 'inner Bentley' is a wild child careening around and ricocheting off things!
Zentangles. I try to meditate at least 15 minutes every day. I call it 'being still' though as meditation always brings forth visions of pretzel legs and 'ohms'. It's not in my nature to not be doing 75 things at once, usually at warp speed, so since the first of the year, I've tried to set aside a little time each day to clear the old brain pan and try to calm-ta-hell-down (see 'clocktower' above).
So there you have it, I've been searching for years for a hobby that is totally 100% useless and produces nothing in the end that can be eaten, worn or valued in any way and I've finally found it! Monet, I am not, but it's the process not the end result that's the thing, and I'm really grooving on it that's for sure. Google 'zentangles' to see work from artists that are actually good at it and see what YOU think!
