Her challenge to us was to tangle something peaceful. We have had such horrible news in the past week...honestly though, all of 2016 has been uneasy and ugly in the public square, in the States.
So, time to bring some peace, and that is what I did. There is a park nearby, one of my favorite places in the world. I have been taking myself there this past week, every day going to sit on the bank of the creek and ground myself.
I sit on the stones, and take off my shoes, and breathe. Listen. Be.
The river has dozens of voices, all repeating the same lullaby, and it is very calming to sit here. I am determined to get out into this space every day, away from all else and seat myself on the earth and simply be there.
Today, I brought my tangle supplies and did the Diva Challenge while immersed in the cool morning light and flowing song of the river.
Then I chose some organic patterns: Pokeleaf, Pokeroot, and Printemps.
Then I shaded using color, to bring in the lovely green/brown of the river. It really is the prettiest shade of green, and I love it when the runoff comes.
And look! A perfect place to raise a family
