Tangleocity Been just playing around with a zentangle that I did as a bedtime wind down kind of exercise.  If you don’t know what zentangles are, go Google it.  It’s basically a kind of doodling, that’s related to drawing mandalas (another word you can google), that gets your zen thing working, stimulates creativity, unplugs the stress parts of your brain.  But after I mindlessly did it, the next day, I found that it was fun to play with it, and there were all kinds of optical illusions in it, when I carved it up different ways and put it back together.  Even my husband started seeing things in the various alignments!  Here are a few examples, but I am also doing some new art pieces incorporating some of the patterns that emerged, which I’ll throw up later.  It loosened and relaxed me so much that I had a really productive day today, after several bad pain days in a row.  It was pretty cool!
