I had the pleasure of teaching a fantastic zentangle basics class yesterday in Reading, PA. We had a great time - see everyone's first tile below! Lots of great ideas and conversation. I love teaching Zentangle!

I recently found the NPR program called On Being and downloaded for free several of the shows before I took a cross country flight. There was one particular show where Jon Kabat-Zinn was interviewed about the importance of mindfulness. Specifically, I enjoyed how he discussed that we need to practice mindfulness. He explains that we all get a lot of practice in being angry or frustrated so we need to also practice being mindful. I find zentangle to be my favorite way to practice. You can find the audio link to the show here or the transcript here. Enjoy.

Later that night, Christel and I went to see the Van Gogh exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art - this was a painting that I had never seen before - titled Dandelions. It was so vivid that this image barely does it justice. But, I was struck by the similarities that drew me to both. cool.

We delivered our chairs yesterday to the Morris Arboretum for their Take A Seat! Adirondack chairs Re-Interpreted Exhibition. Titled: By Land or By Sea, Revere Nature! We will attend an award ceremony and reception on 5/21 to find out where our chairs will be displayed throughout the summer! Christel Hoffman is pictured on the right with her Lighthouse chair and Mia and I are on the left.
