I have a question that is really going to test your memories all the way to CZT Seminar 4.
In our seminar someone asked what the name of this tangle was and Maria replied that it was something she has done for a long time and never named it. Then Maria asked for suggestions. A lot of different names were called out, and I raised my hand and said that I had seen that in Maria's work for a long time and whenever I saw it, I always said to myself, "there is one of Maria's Zinger's".
Maria then said, "That's it," and wrote the name Zinger on the tile that was under the document camera so it was projected on the wall.
The class then moved on, and I saw Maria during a break and said that I was thrilled to name her little tangle, Zinger. She smiled, grabbed my arm and said "Life is good." It was my 15 minutes of fame in CZT class-LOL!
Anyway, I don't recall ever seeing it officially named. After I posted on Facebook, what I recalled above, several other CZT's from class 4 all said they remembered it being named, Zinger and have always called it that since. On that tangle, sometimes your lines are open and sometimes the are closed, but I always felt it was the same tangle (another part of the discussion). One of the CZT's from class 4 said she thought it would be neat if it was called Maria's Zinger, kind of like Rick's Paradox. I like that idea too!
Do you think this is would be good to put out in a newsletter or on your blog? You don't have to tell how it was named, but just clarify that it is Maria's tangle and what the name is. Thanks!
Hope you both have a wonderful holiday season with you family!
