I have to thank you for your website, its
. . . until last month I hadn't picked up a
pencil in a year and have been struggling with my creativity. I have insomnia but the worst part was loosing my creativity. I
tried joining some online groups to get it going again without much results.
Then last month someone in one of the groups mentioned Zentangle, so I did a web
search and found your website. I went to the website and the first thing I
thought was, hey, I used to do this, and I remembered how much a part of my life
it had been. But when I tried to just do it on my own I just pulled a blank and
after several crumpled up attempts I went back to the website . . .
It has been wonderful, I've been doing at least one
a day, I do it sometimes in the evening for hours and have had the best nights
sleep that I've had in years, I grind my teeth and I've noticed when I start
doing Zentangle I actual stop grinding and clenching. I feel like I've come out of a
very long fog, or sleep. Interesting enough, I have high blood pressure,
and anxiety, and last week at the dentist, at which I usually have at least one
anxiety attack when I go, I did this in the waiting room and not only did I not
have an anxiety attack, my blood pressure was a low 102.
And so I had to thank you, I hear lots of people
online and in person say its nothing new, that they have done this all their
lives, but they didn't share it with others, and they don't know what its like
to forget it. So thank you, thank you for sharing and teaching and re-teaching.
So simply, but not so simply, Thank
