Metropolitan Cathedral on the zolcalo in Mexico City

Disclosure: We enjoyed this tour as guests of Context Travel. I made no promise regarding the type of coverage I would provide. The opinions and observations expressed below are my own.  Our well traveled digital nomad son decided to put down roots in Mexico City. This was all the excuse Mr. Excitement and I needed for […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #342 – Hola Mexico City Edition

November 23, 2017 6 comments

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 […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #341 – Oaxaca, Mexico Edition

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 […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #334 – Enough with the Disasters Already Edition

September 26, 2017 12 comments

The Scream by Edvard Munch: Public Domain

If Zentangle is a new concept for you, start here.  This week, the Zentangle Diva challenged us to do a composition using the tangle “Crazy N’Zeppel”, a Mother Ship endorsed tangleation of presumably sane N’Zeppel. The difference is that the crazy version uses randomly spaced and slanted lines; whereas, the “normal” version is done using […]

Skyscrapers of Lower Manhattan from the Brooklyn Waterfront, New York City

I’m a little late to this week’s challenge because I spent last weekend in New York City, a/k/a the Big Apple, Gotham, the city that never sleeps. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.) When I finally put my micron felt tip pens and pencils to paper, I found that I still am obsessed […]

Linda Higdon on a Womens Journey to Kenya

I recently returned from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and my first Women in Travel Summit conference organized by Wanderful, “an international sisterhood of women who support one another — before, during and after travel.” The conference brought together a lively, diverse (age, race and ethnicity) group of women travel writers and bloggers, along with destination and resource […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #307 — From Hawaii and Mexico to a Blizzard Edition???

March 13, 2017 17 comments

(If Zentangle is a new concept for you, start here.) I was feeling a big smug, thinking that Mr. Excitement and I had managed to escape what I was sure would have been the worst of Philadelphia’s winter by escaping leaving for a month from January 22nd until February 21st. We started with a week in Honolulu, […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #289 – “Ahoy Thar” Edition

October 18, 2016 16 comments

Once again I was MIA for another week. This is becoming a disturbing unfortunate habit. I’m going to blame it on watching too much TV coverage of the United States’ election and thus becoming paralyzed with depression. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. After November 8th, I’ll have to come up with another […]

Dreamcatcher Zentangle tangle compositions

This week’s Zentangle Diva’s challenge was to use Dreamcatcher, a tangle by Certified Zentangle Teacher Daniel Lemothe (yay Daniel). Daniel developed Dreamcatcher by deconstructing the pattern used in Native American dreamcatchers. Dreamcatchers were originally used by the Ojibwe (Chippewa) peoples who live mostly in eastern Canada and some northern mid-West states in the United States. […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge Straight Lines

For the first time since I started doing the Zentangle Diva’s weekly challenges some time in 2014, I missed several weeks in a row. No excuses. I left my summer digs in Brigantine, New Jersey on August 29th and left for two weeks in England and Iceland two days later, but I’ve participated in weekly […]
