Official CZT!

I am now an official "CZT"! A "what" you may ask. I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher. Just returned from the CZT workshop in Boston with Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts.

Zentangles are a meditative, repetitive art form and they are fabulous. There are a lot of tanglers out there but I got to learn from the original tanglers.

You can check out the story of Zentangles and Maria and Rick at

You can also find a CZT in your area. I'm in Orange County, CA if anyone wants to try your hand at this wonderful art form. It is fun, relaxing and beautiful.

Anything is possible, one stroke at a time.

Aloha from Hawaii

Yes, my sister Nancy and I were warming our bones in February! We stayed with great friends, Mark and Cristi, in Kailua on Oahu. In ten days I only managed these two pages, but we had a fabulous time.

We swam, snorkeled with dolphins, walked the beach, watched turtles and whales and ate many a fine meal. One day after a storm we drove to the North Shore to see the big waves. We stopped and did a little beach combing and found these interesting seed pods.
