Tangles from my hiatus

It's been a long, long time.

I still somewhat practice Zentangle at least several days a week, but many of them are in my bullet journal, on a napkin, or wherever I can find a snatch of clear space...which clearly doesn't do it justice and isn't being true to the meditative form. I'm on a mission to get back to basics and do it right moving forward.

There has been so much going on, I can't even begin to make this post anything resembling a coherent, topic-driven post, so instead, I'll just put up some of the tangles I've done in my absence.

From the diva: Weekly Challenge #253: "New Tangle: Molygon"

I don't even know how long it's been since I had time to post a challenge from the diva, but it's too long.  I still do some sort Zentangle almost every day, and I'm convinced that it has done me nothing but good.  I do occasionally get a little carried away with it, but mostly I just make it my "me time" and go about my day.

This week's challenge was to use the new official Zentangle pattern Molygon, recently released in the Zentangle Newsletter (which you can sign up for here or on the diva's site).

I do believe I may have overdone the coffee this morning.

But it may also be true that lately I'm suffering from a bit of "FOMO"--which I recently learned means "Fear Of Missing Out"...and this often describes me to a T.  I am a learn-a-holic, and I am ever thirsty for new experiences. Sometimes my tangling is full of this piece of me, and today is certainly one of those days.

 I couldn't decide on a color, so I used both.  I couldn't decide on a fill pattern, so I used a bunch. Here's what I came up with:

And I just realized that all those dots make it look like some crazy Pac-Man thing. Funny :)

Here's hoping that everyone has a joyful day.
