Here are a few final chords.
|Squash on the vine|
Dried corn waiting for the harvest...
|A Moth visiting wildflowers|
and a couple of friends taking a moment to listen too!
Hope you are hearing summer's last strains. God Bless!

For years I have doodled... on backs of envelopes...grocery lists...meeting agendas ...sketchbooks...etc. My doodles were not meant to be art. They were just a way of making marks.
Then I discovered Zentangles. They are patterns that are tangled into a design. There are hundreds of tangles out there to do...some are simple and others more complex.
You can even move from tangling a simple square to creating a zentangle inspired art piece. What is wonderful about them is there is really no right or wrong way of creating these works.
They are designed for you to relax and just focus on making one line at a time.
You just need a white piece of paper, a black micron pen or one that is similar and a pencil for shading.
You can read all about them at Zentangle.com
What a great way to jump start a creative block and have some fun as well.
Take warning though they are addicting.
Hope you have a beautiful Sunday - God Bless!

Saturday's chores were left behind. They would wait. This event just couldn't be missed.
It was a lovely way to travel... the breeze and the sun made it especially delightful. The best part of the day for me!
These magnificent ships are amazing. A part of the past that remains for folks to still see.
I am so glad we seized the day. It made a special memory..
Hope you are making one too!
