colored mandalas

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: […]

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 […]

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 […]

Labor Day and Steampunk- A Smidgen of History I guess a history major can graduate from college, but she’ll still always be searching for historical underpinnings. So, please excuse me while I learn something about Labor Day “out loud”. In the United States and in Canada, we celebrate Labor Day on the first Monday in […]

Zentangle Diva Challenges #366-7 – She’s Back!!! Edition

September 9, 2018 9 comments

cloudscape Brigantine New Jersey

The Zentangle Diva, Laura, took a break from posting her weekly challenges and I admit I was experiencing withdrawal pangs. Although I’m enough of a Zentangle® junkie that I never stopped tangling, especially while watching cable TV news, I missed the discipline imposed by the Diva’s challenges. She eased us back in gently for challenge #366 […]

Dinoflor – A New Organic Tangle from Boomeresque

dinoflor monotangle

I’ve been watching waaaay too much cable news. The silver lining is that I don’t really watch. I listen while I tangle #1) because I enjoy tangling, and #2) to stay at least relatively sane. I realize this is a subversion of the Zentangle® method which should be undertaken in a calm setting, perhaps with […]

Spangles, A New Boomeresque Tangle (With Apologies to Francis Scott Key)

Spangles, a new boomeresque tangle

With the caveat that I’ve tried to do due diligence to discover whether this is already a named tangle, here is Spangles, a new Boomeresque tangle. It’s a little embarrassing to admit that the genesis of this tangle is nothing in particular. I suspect it started when I was doing some old-fashioned, traditional doodling while […]

Zentangle tangle Shorely by Suzanne Fluhr, CZT

(For anyone visiting this post from Zentangle DivaLandistan where I am guest Diva this week, scroll down to see Aloha used with 2 versions of Shorely.) My blog is named “Boomeresque” because I am of a certain age. It’s an age when recalling the names of tangles to use with the Zentangle® method becomes a […]

Dawn over the Atlantic enroute to Dublin.

Thank you to all who participated in the Zentangle Diva challenge last week when I was the guest Diva. I saw some very nice work interpreting my theme, Give Peace a Chance, and I was comforted to see how many of you all over the United States and the world share my yearning.  …And then […]
