Zentangle #194 Diva Challange - mit der (non-dominant) "falschen" Hand tanglen


Embrace the yuck
(freie Übersetzung: Umarme Deine Ängste)

Hallo Zentangle-friends

Vorsicht: Dies ist ein längerer Beitrag geworden - ungeplant - aber gibt es Zufälle?!
Ausnahmsweise für die deutsche Version diesmal bitte Google-Übersetzung nutzen.

This is the result of my "fear and hope":
- first time left hand tangled
- first time try the tangles:
 Finery, Fungees, Footlite, Hurry, Hibred Band

Dear Guest Blogger Elisa Murphey, CZT 15 - like me - did this week the challenge for Laura Harms, who took the time with her son´s surgery (witch went well she wrote earlier today! - Thanks god).

Elisa & Laura touched my heart, so - again - put everything aside and take time for Zentangle.
I´m not a parent-part, but since a short time I´m two time Grandma - starting to get used to it ;-)   (each of my husbands daughters gave birth to a boy - they went both so well, absolutly cute and adorable - sunshine).
Just 3 weeks ago the 5 month old one burned his finger - autsch - so sad - and he got a big boxer-hand is now well again.

Yesterday the other one (14 month old) - just arrived for 3 weeks vacation from USA/CA, where they live since spring - took a cup from the Kitchen-Counter - with fresh boiled coffee!  and burned terrible!!! So they stay now in south Germany in a Hospital! soooooo sad, we feel so symphaty for him and his mother - what a shock!
We guess, they won´t make it to Hamburg, so we sure will fly in a few days to munich, to visit and supporting them.

So, for today´s challenge instant a word came into my mind: Fear!
This is my first tangle-time with my left Hand - promise! Although I´m left hand, I only learnd writing with the right one. But because I´m a little left hand trained - I took with the left hand only new tangles, and only with the Name "F" (for my fear about the burned grandson).

And I really wondered (positiv), how good it went tangling with the non-dominant hand.
So a second feeling came into my mind: Hope!
(and I really hope the best for the little guy and his mother, that he will get well soon and altogether!
and that the other grandson please stay healthy.

  3. Yes, you do well with your left hand. I am so sorry to hear about your grandson and wish him a speedy recovery. Poor little thing. Hugs to grandma too as things like that happen and that's why they're called accidents.

    1. yepp, indeed doubly challenge. Thanks Dear Megan for your likable comment and your sympathy!
      Today I really felt the calming way of Zentangle again - just focus line by line, Smoking brain (hi left Hand, what are you doing? tangling?) and stop thinking for a short time about the poor little guy.

    1. :-)) yepp, I do like the result (never gave it a try - before this challenge, Lucky me I did now). Always stretching - I love it.
      Grandson is much better, out of Hospital, and he will get a Kind of Body/suit for some month (for healing). So we hope, that as less as possible grain/scar will left over.

  11. My mother was also a left-handed person who was forced to learn to write with her right hand as a child. Fortunately, educators have learned a few things since then. Your tile hasn't suffered at all for having been done with your non-dominant hand.

    1. Thanks for your interesting and kind comment, Suzanne.
      Nowadays I always look out for the little ones, how they grab a pencil or scissor in my classes. and encourage them to try out both Hands, if they not comfortable with the using hand.

      At least I don´t remember, that they forced me at school to use for writing the right Hand (no damage ;-). But at home I had to give the "good hand" - I sat the table always wrong (till I figured for me, to do it from the other table side ;-) and they took knifes out of my hand ("Looks so dangerous, what are you doing..."). But sewing, Tennis, right Hand scissors - everything with left Hand.

      When I grown up, I figured out "I guess, I´m left handed" - or both handed, but sure no right hand ;-)
      So it was now - a lot of years later - really a surprise, that I can do a tangle with the left hand too!!! ;-) always learning when strechting, right? Thanks for thinking about my life-way I went so far! :-)

  14. I'm sorry about your little guys and hope that things are going better for them. Kids do cause a lot of fear in us sometimes as well as hope. I have 5 granddaughters and know those feelings well. Your tile is beautifully done, especially with those tangles that are new to you. Well done.
