Closing in on the Zentangle Calendar
This gives the illusion that I am "caught up" on my calendar.
Hahaha. Many blank pages previous to this.
But I decided to go forward and then go back and fill in.
Ixorus was the blog prompt for Back to Square One on Facebook last week so I dropped that in.
The minimalist trees are not really exactly a Zentangle® pattern but someone posted them on the Tangle A Day calendar Facebook group (see her name) and I was so taken with them I decided to add them to this grouping.
Borbz has been around quite awhile but someone put this new grouping on their blog and I wanted to try it out. Salo is a new tangle for me.
We all get to "musing" about time and the passage of it when the old year ends and a new begins. I find this not really a good time for me to "set goals". All my teaching years have always made September be my goal setting time. But I do think it is a good time to look back and think over what has happened and try to make some sense of it.
I remember last January when I started my first year long "prompt" group for journaling that I posted how NOT ready I was for a new year and how even reluctant I was to even admit that the new Year was beginning. I showed a sweater unraveling off me while I was still wearing it. Me looking dismayed. Father time pulling the strings off.
I don't feel quite that reluctant this year. A little more forgiving about what happened and what didn't this year. I like the idea of "giving up regrets" because that is too much like whining.
I quote Danny Gregory:
"I can provide reasonable goals, set myself up with clear and achievable markers of success, be supportive and understanding without being either a wimp or a tyrant, and remind myself that failure is not catastrophic but just a detour from a path and one I can still return to.
