I haven't written about Zentangling for a while, and I think this is a good time for it. I am slowly working my way through One Zentangle a Day, and it is helping me in two ways. First, it is expanding my repertoire of patterns and ways to use patterns.
Equally important, it really does have a Zen effect on me. There have been lots of stressful days with my broken leg, and Zentangling has always helped calm me. I'm not very good at traditional meditation, but I drawing in this structured way is calming.
And I am going to need some Zen to get through the last two weeks of school. Working my full schedule with a broken leg has been more tiring than I expected, but I'm determined to stick it out!
