Hump Day Zentangle Challenge

Two weeks ago we were reveling in spring flowers in Australia. Fast forward 9,864 miles (15,875 kilometers) and we’re ensconced back in a Philly fall (autumn) on the east coast of the United States. We live in Center City Philadelphia. I haven’t been all that impressed by the fall foliage colors this year — a […]

Our last flight back home was on American Airlines, the […]

Athens Greece Acropolis, Parthenon at night

I’m sorry. I just couldn’t resist the cheesy title of this week’s Hump Day Zentangle Challenge. We have been on the move and are now in the second country of our five week trip around the world. I am writing this from Bulgaria, and it looks like I need to admit that I missed a […]

In last Wednesday’s Hump Day Zentangle challenge, I was feeling all light-hearted about our upcoming flight to Athens to begin our five week around the world trip. Our plan was to fly from Athens to Chania on the Greek island of Crete. We did end up on Crete, but two days later than planned because […]

Hump Day Zentangle® Challenge #14 – Leaving on a Jet Plane Edition (With Apologies to Peter, Paul and Mary)

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge Clouds

A frequent theme on Boomeresque is “Time Flies”. Well, this week we’re flying for real, leaving on the first of 11 jet planes. When I married Mr./Dr. Excitement, I didn’t realize his career would result in many travel opportunities. I thought I was marrying a physician. Indeed, there were many years of 3:00 a.m. calls. […]

Most Americans (United Statesers) in my demographic remember where we were when three major events in the life of our country happened: President Kennedy was assassinated; Neil Armstrong walked on the moon; and, on 9/11. (I realize most of the rest of the world thinks of it as 11/9). Where Were You on 9/11/2001? I […]

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge #12

This is my last Hump Day Zentangle post from our summer abode “down the shore” in Brigantine, New Jersey. (Note to Miscreants: Other people will be here so don’t get any ideas!) Dino and I have lived down here since Memorial Day weekend, while Mr. Excitement commutes for long weekends because someone in the family […]

Hump Day Zentangle® Challenge #10 – Stuff Happens & Tangle Your “Chop” Edition

August 21, 2019 5 comments

Stuff Happens It’s still Wednesday (Hump Day) in my neck of the global woods, but I apologize for the fact that this week’s challenge will be published later than intended. I wish I could be as focused as Mr. Excitement and finish projects before they’re actually due, but after 37 years of being married to […]

Hump Day Zentangle® Challenge #9 – Listen to the Music Edition

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge #9

There are certain things that seem to be hard-wired in human beings. Every culture has a myth of creation. We want to know where we come from, how we got here. And, every culture has music. Often, we combine the two. Not surprisingly, religiously inspired music is some of the most moving. Our search for […]
