Lessons that have stuck with me for over forty years.
I was considering all that Saturday as it was community clean-up day, meaning we could take anything we wanted to the local refuse transfer station, for 'free.' I put that in quotations because as i was hauling some brush to the trailer, I tripped and fell on my (non-writing, and more importantly, non-drawing) arm, shattering the radius bone at the wrist into many pieces.
I am home, resting comfortably, after surgery Sunday night, pondering just how expensive "free" will be. (What a way to test out my newly minted Affordable Care Act insurance!)
All that said, if you've visited before you may know I utilize the Zentangle method to help manage chronic pain.
It is certainly serving me well now!
These may not be the best examples of my abilities, but it's making me sit still, which seems to be the biggest challenge to my recovery. (And really, I'm experiencing very little discomfort related to this little "mishap." At least until the invoices start rolling in.)
First up, the Diva had guest Amy Broady provide a challenge to get our shine on. Rather than pull out all the pretty metallic pens and pencils, I went old-school in an attempt to SIMULATE shiny with the sparkle enhancement method. (What THAT means is included in this Zentangle glossary).
Get Your Shine On!
One is "All Angular" and the other, "Light N Fluffy."
And before I throw in the towel, the EIM for the week, I have to note that I went to the Emergency Room Saturday with one towel and came home with a different one! I guess I took to heart, "Don't Panic and Grab a Towel!"
That pretty much covers it for this week!
