I had such a great week by myself. And it was great to get home to my family too.
I attended the Certified Zentangle Teachers training in Whitinsville Massachusetts for 3 days. It was a Great experience. We were housed in a mansion built in 1862, which had gorgeous woodworking detail and stature. 57 people came from all over North America and 1 from Holland. The sharing and energy was wonderful. The calm - from the tangling - and from people's presence was amazing.
After the 3 days I spent about 1 24hour period touring Newport Rhode Island. I enjoyed my time just walking the streets, visiting the Atlantic Ocean, and eating supper by the sunset. It felt so freeing to be able to make my own decisions about when to stop, where to go, what to eat. I loved the taste of the salt on my lips after walking outside, the smell of the ocean, the sound of the waves crashing onto the rocks, and the sound of the waves kissing the beach sand. All of the birds in Newport - the warm sun... the ocean breeze.. . It was a beautiful debriefing after spending 3 days creating, and learning. .. then to go and experience God's creating. Ahh...
I look forward to sharing Zentangles with you... It will bring you peace and energy too.
