From Start...To Finish..."

My Moleskine in the Zentangle Moly_X_ 11 exchange...:)

A blank book...full pens...and an inspired Muse
awaiting their rendezvous with destiny.

My sign in pages...

My pages 1 and 2...

followed by my pages 3 and 4...:)
The medallion lifts in three layers and reads:
"A dot is a line that went for a walk..."
(~Paul Klee)
"A zentangle
is a garden of lines blooming in the mind's eye..."
a magical place where your Muse can
dance, glide and flourish
with delight!"

Following then,
are Cindy Michele's pages 5 and 6...

and Cindy's pages 7 and 8.

are Sandra's pages 9 and 10...

and Sandra's pages 11 and 12...

which, in turn
are followed by Jella's pages 13 and 14...

and Jella's pages 15 and 16.
Everything is beautifully interwoven.

Rounding out my book
are Lisa Rene's pages 17 and 18...

and Lisa's pages 19 and 20.

I have not yet determined if I will add additional pages
to my book.
Sadly, for unforeseen and unknown reasons
my book, thus far, it the only one
has completed the exchange and has returned home.
This is truly bittersweet.
Of grave concern is the whereabouts
and completion levels
of Sandra, Jella, and Lisa's books.
They have not made is past the second rotation.
We each hope and pray that
Cindy is well and that the books will once again fly free.
We have tried endlessly to make contact and resolve this dilemma.
Until then,
My Muse and I hold Cindy's book in safekeeping.

I cherish my book to pieces...she is a special irreplaceable treasure.
To Cindy, Sandra, Jella, and Lisa...
I am deeply grateful for the staggering beauty of your
intertwined artistic expressions
the countless hours of time spent by each of you
while you danced and glided and flourished with your artistic Muses
in my Moly.
You gals are the best!

“Life is inherently risky.
There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs,
and that is the risk of doing
~Denis Waitley


  1. These images are so cool. I hope that this group is still at work. Looking forward to seeing more.

  2. Unfortunately, one of our members dropped off the radar with three of our albums, so our group is at a standstill. Hopefully, she'll pop up someday, and offer to return them!
