Pod Person

I try to learn something new every day. Today I learned that an alien life form apparently controls my left hand, because I certainly don't! The Week #13 Zentangle Challenge over on The Diva's website is to draw a tangle using your non-dominant hand. Now those of you who know me in person know that when I'm talking, I'm an equal-opportunity-hand-waver-arounder kinda girl so I didn't think this would be as difficult as it actually was. Oh. My. Gosh! At one point I had to literally sit on my right hand because the alien kept trying to pass the pen to it and it kept saying, "Sure I'll take it, give it here!" My brain knew what I wanted to do, but the alien short-circuited the message and just did its own thing every time. It was fun and I'm glad I tried it, but I'm glad to switch back to the hand I control from now on. Here's the shameful entry for this week.

The courage to participate is all that's required - nothing shameful about this entry! It's surprisingly well-balanced, curvaceous and lovely - are you sure that alien didn't succeed in handing over the pen?....*G*

That looks better than my right hand could do!

Doesn't look shameful to me! I love the alien thought.

The alien did a fab job would never know if you had not told us! XOXO Zoe

I don't think that's shameful at all! Some people can't even manage to get the pen to the paper with the "wrong" hand.

Ok. That is just NOT fair. Your Tangle looks like a Tangle. Mine looks like an unbelievable mess. Perhaps we should try this more often so that if we are ever stuck without our dominant hand temporarily or permanently we'll be a little more flexible. What a learning lesson that was!

wow you sure have been busy! Some really interesting tangles. I've made a note to try your pwizzles real soon.
