Simplicity

Laura Harms, CZT at http://iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com/ has started a weekly Zentangle challenge that should be a lot of fun.  This 1st challenge is called, simplicity.  Well, one of my favorite books is Simple Abundance, by Sarah Ban Breathnach and simplicity is one of the six principles in this book.  "Simplicity-the desire to clear out, pare down, and realize the essentials that we need to live truly well."   For me that meant clearing out my mind of what I wanted to do, just make one tangle and let the lines flow where they may and not try to make it perfect, and appreciate that every time I do a zentangle it does help me to live truly well in so many ways.  

Check out Laura's blog and join in the fun.  Thanks Laura for putting this together.  Also a great way to find new blogs to follow.
