Diva Challenge: Hope in the Face of Adversity

Fiona, Good Joss, Henna Drum

The Diva's challenge this week is a touching and difficult one.  (Have you noticed that she is giving us a lot of think about lately?)  

She is responding to devastating floods in Canada in an area where she used to live.  So she has asked us to "respond to many natural disasters" that we are hearing and seeing on the news...horrible fires, tornadoes and floods here and all over the world.

Zen-like people (like ourselves) are especially sensitive to these things as I think most of us are "introverts" or relatively introverted. I mean that in the best sense of the word.  Read Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain.   

So the Diva asks...how can we "show through our zentangles" the power of hope in adversity.  I know that mine is not a true Zentangle but rather is a ZIA.  It has a string that looks like something and it has a right-side up.  But I needed to have something recognizable in mine to send my message.
