I'm putting that statement both BEFORE and AFTER my version of the story, to give you the opportunity to react without reading my Stuff.
I was sitting and visiting with my parents recently, and tangling almost continuously (it helps, Really) As I worked on this one, somewhere in the midst of the process, I saw that I had used a lot of tangles that I haven't used recently, but they're tangles I used more a year ago, when I was first discovering Zentangle: my Zentangle "roots."
I kinda liked this thought, especially considering that I was in my parents home, talking of "family matters."
So I added the growing Flux in that empty space I still had in the middle, to symbolize both my Zentangle growth and my "daughter-growth." And I gave it some roots, because that WAS the original thought: roots of Zentangle, roots of Family.
You cannot grow well: strong, healthy, grounded in the past and reaching for the Light, if your roots are not deep!
The last part of the Challenge is to invite YOU to share what this tile says to you! So let's hear from you.
