In other Zentangle news this week... I get to share the Zentangle method in a class in which we are having an end-of-semester cultural celebration. I sort of jokingly told the organizer that I could not do a music or dance or poetry performance (which is the bulk of the program)... all I could do would be teach people to do the patterns I do in my notes during class. He was unexpectedly enthusiastic about that prospect. I hope the rest of the class is too, and I hope I do a good job of representing the method in 15 minutes! Have a great week.

Which 'Schway' do I go?
This week's challenge over at The Diva is all about the new official Zentangle pattern Schway. Its name reminds me a lot of the 'valley speak' craze of the early 80's in which cool dudes and 'valley girls' would respond to everything with... "Way?" or "Way!" or "Totally!" depending on which fit the circumstance. Of course, as a scientist, the square sine wave that makes up the foundation is exciting (OK, so it doesn't take much for me to be excited anymore ... I did grow up in the 80's after all). I was afraid that it wouldn't be very fluid, but I managed to get some curvy lines out of it in the second piece, although, ironically I like the first one better. Which would be your choice?
