Zen-tangle of Joy

A friend and I went to see Andy Dooley friday evening. funny guy! You may be familiar with T.U.T. and notes from the Universe, which his brother Mike does. Andy sends some other inspiring emails with art. He's a funny guy. yes. it did me a world of good, but I didn't actually realize how much until yesterday morning while rushing and brushing my teeth, the "aha" came to me...."serious problem".... shit! I WAS being too serious... waaaaaaay too serious lately.
I needed to lighten up and an evening of laughter was what I needed.
I also needed to do some art.
Balance. I've been working hard, teaching classes, doing some volunteer work for Youth Art Month, doing some online classes for myself and then there is the "caretaker" part :-)
Jupiter conjuncting my sun in 5th house.. EXPANSION...
so I needed to get off the computer... stop watching House, and go into the back room and create.
and so I did. This is one of the zentangles. When I turned it on it's side I saw this goofy grin. Yeah. There it is again..... smile. laugh. find that joy and stop taking it all so serious.
Pay attention to the messages.....

Doreen,
There's nothing like the act of creative expression to loosen us up from our own seriousness. Glad you broke away from House, and the pc to create this zentangle of joy!...it is indeed that!
