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: […]

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge, Mandala Zendala

During the winter here in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States in the northern hemisphere, I usually fall prey to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

I’m supposed to be writing this from Mexico City where we planned to visit our digital nomad son who lives there — and also escape some cold winter weather. Instead, I’m sitting on our couch in Philadelphia, trying to avoid triggering a back spasm. I’m leaning on a heating pad, downing ibuprofen (a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory […]

Zendala Reimagine Reinvention

Let me start by wishing everyone reading this a happy, healthy and contented new year. Seriously, how did it get to be 2020 already?

I wish I could start today’s post by reporting that my back spasms and pain have resolved. They haven’t. I should buy shares in ibuprofen. Meanwhile, as you may have noticed—Christmas is in one week and Channukah starts even sooner on December 22nd this year. We have out of town relatives arriving on Christmas Day. […]

Those of you who are my Facebook friends know that two weeks prior to leaving on our recent five week around the world trip, I was loading the dishwasher and ended up with excruciating back spasms for no reason that was obvious to me. It was so bad I had to call my sleeping husband […]

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge

I’m afraid this is another late Hump Day Zentangle Challenge. For my non-United Stateser readers, we celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November. I’ve had my post Thanksgiving dinner nap (also a national tradition), and am therefore once again feeling sufficiently compos mentis to write. Thanksgiving has been celebrated on […]

Those in the Hump Day Zentangle Challenge Facebook group know that last week I did not post a challenge because I was feeling overwhelmed by my 94 year old mother’s situation. She fell and broke a hip a week ago on Saturday. She underwent surgery the following day and on Wednesday, she was discharged from […]

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.
