Why Rosie's Book?

While growing up, I had a dear friend, Renee, that lived next door and with whom I spent much of my childhood. We grew, in different directions, and went on our merry way. Many years later, I ran into her parents and they kindly reminded me of the laughs they still have over my book. “What book?” I wondered with a puzzled look. "I don't remember a book." Hardy laughter accompanied their response. At some time during our childhood, I tried to convince Renee about something that her parents didn’t agree with. I told her that proof of its truth could be found “in my book.” Naturally she went home and tried to convince her parents of the same thing but they weren’t falling for it. She needed an edge and told them emphatically, “It’s in Rosie’s book!” After they caught their breaths from reborn laughter, they let me know how “Rosie’s book” has been cited for many other things throughout the years. They’ve also mentioned that they’d like to see “Rosie’s book” one day. I can’t remember all of the things that I said were in “my book” but I’m sure my dear friend’s parents can recall much more than I ever knew about – LOL!!! So, here it is . . . my version of things you might find In Rosie’s Book . . .

Continuing A Love for Zentangle

There is something so incredible to me about meeting groups of people, guiding them through this simple and meditative art form called Zentangle, then admiring their final work.

This photo shows some Zentangle tiles created at a March workshop . . .

The tiles in this photo were completed more recently.  On a fine Saturday in April, Sam invited some dear friends to her lovely home to introduce them to the Art of Zentangle.  How fortunate I was to be there too!

Many of the magnificent Zentangle tiles shown in these photos have been completed by wonderful people who have never heard of Zentangle.  Before their first tiles were completed, they wanted to learn more . . . in a much calmer way - LOL!!!  Gotta love it!!!
