August 10, 2015 34 comments

Yes, I know that’s not the correct spelling of “First”, but this is a tangle for use with the Zentangle method, so there are no mistakes—right?

If you share my Boomeresque age demographic, you have learned, probably repeatedly, that the Scottish poet Robert Burns had it right when he wrote in his 1786 poem, To a Mouse, that: The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry. This sentiment was echoed by Woody Allen some 200 years later when he said: […]

When I was a child, not only couldn’t we entertain ourselves with I-Pads, we even had to watch a TV show when it was actually being broadcast. In my family, we were allowed to watch one half hour “educational” TV show after school. The rest of the time, we could read actual books, do our […]

Tangled Zentangle Tile using N'zeppel as a string

Much of the United States, and indeed, the northern hemisphere in general, sizzled last week through the weekend. After a stormy night, the extreme heat finally broke.
