Zentangle Diva Challenge #263 – O Canada Edition

May 14, 2018 12 comments

Fairmont Le Château Frontenac

I’ve been doing the Diva’s weekly challenges, but I’ve been “out” a lot lately, so I haven’t shared them here. When I say “out”, I mean “out of the country”. In April, we spent two weeks in Italy, and a week after returning from there, I flew to Quebec City in Canada for a conference, […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #360 – Bella Italia Edition

April 18, 2018 13 comments

Assisi, Umbria, Italy

Ciao from Italy! (Did you know that “Ciao” means both “hello” and “good-bye” in Italian?) After the first week of our two week tour of Italy, it seemed I never said “Wow” so often in any other seven days of my life. I’m relieved I still have the capacity for wonderment at my somewhat advanced age. […]

Rittenhouse Square snow scene in Philadelphia march 2018

In her challenge this week, the Zentangle Diva, Laura Harms, lamented that notwithstanding the date on the calendar, spring didn’t seem close to springing in Saskatoon, Canada where she lives. I was uncharitably rolling my eyes and thinking, “Canada, Duh”, until I was shivering while walking the dog here in Philadelphia, a good number of […]

Descent into Cuenca, Ecuador

I didn’t expect to be able to do this week’s Zentangle Diva challenge because Mr. and Mrs. Excitement are traveling in Ecuador this week. It turned out I had more free time than I thought. More about that later. The Diva challenged us to do a tile acknowledging Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day. Her seven year […]

Moorish Kiosk, Alameda Santa Maria la Ribera

I did last week’s Zentangle Diva challenge in Oaxaca, Mexico. We’ve now moved onto Mexico City where we are staying with our digital nomad son, Jeremy. It turns out that at a certain point, even wanderlusters feel the need to have a home base. Jeremy has visited many of the great cities of the world […]

Basilica of Santo Domingo, Oaxaca, Mexico

This week the Zentangle Diva challenged us to “go big, or go home”. Mr. Excitement and I are on day two of a ten day trip to Mexico, so I’m definitely not ready to go home. I’m also finding it difficult to find time to tangle. Last night I was exhausted from a 13 hour […]

Philadelphia witch

Today is Halloween. Bah Humbug (oh wait, wrong holiday). We live in an apartment and both our sons are grown and flown so Halloween is basically a “nothing burger” around here. However, the Zentangle Diva challenge this week is to compose something to represent fall or Halloween. In order to avoid having to make a […]
