The Diva decided to throw a blast-from-the-past at us this week, and echoed a Challenge from last year. The challenge of completing a tile with our non-dominant hand. YIKES! As a kid I tried to train myself to be ambidextrous...with no success. I am a confirmed right-y. Which is fine...until the Diva askes me to tangle with my left hand! Rick and Maria encourage this, too. It's a great exercise in approaching something familiar in a different way.
So, I did it. I just sat down and put my mind (and my left hand) to it and completed my tile. I wanted to see it through so there'd be no chance of me neglecting my tile and leaving it half done.
It was difficult. But I actually enjoyed the process, though I felt awkward and frustrated with my lack of control. I'm not thrilled with my tile. But maybe I came up with a new tangle! Does anyone know of a tangle such as the one on the lower right hand side? A grid-based collection of converging lines...my mind is spinning trying to come up with a great name, just in case it doesn't have one yet.
This tile features Juke in a modified form (I didn't mean to modify it; I just goofed and ran with it), Mysteria, Meer, Crescent Moon, and the Tangle- Without-a-Name-Yet-But I'm-Working-On-It-and-Please-Let-Me-Know-If-You-Are-Aware-of-this-Tangle's-Existence-by-Another-Tangler.
If you visit, please, PLEASE do me a favor--leave a comment! It doesn't have to be on this post--I had very few comments on my last two entries last time I checked (a mere two comments each...is anyone visiting?), so explore a bit and leave me some feedback!
Don't miss Caroline's tile, posted under "Bonus Moebius." Who's Caroline? Read the post and find out!
Off to continue trying to make the most of this Monday,
