It's All About Me . . . and Zentangle

It's NOT all about me, but just a little more info:
I am a 50-something nurse, dreaming of retiring some day.
I'm the mother of 3 grown children
I discovered Zentangle, quite by accident, while Searching for something else, in February of 2010.
I quickly became "hooked."  I thought of Zentangle Teacher Certification, but didn't believe it was in reach for 2010. A happy coincidence occurred and I found myself in Whitinsville, MA in October!

The CZT training seminar in Whitinsville was a terrific experience! 60+ people from extremely varied backgrounds, ready to learn, and to share. Rick & Maria's gentle-but-powerful energy. The charming ambiance and great food at the Oakhurst Retreat and Conference Center. The visit to Rick & Maria's home & studio: an unbelievably fabulous space! The constant little treats, gifts and give-aways. The sharing of thoughts, ideas, and Zentangle-inspired art!!

WOW! Overwhelming, empowering, exciting, expanding. I can't think of enough adjectives!
