"I took a Zentangle workshop from a CZT in Columbus, Ohio, a few years back as part of an art educators conference and am only now getting to doing it myself - for real - as a practice.
"The community, the pedagogy and the artform you have created is wonderful. Thank you." -- AD
"I know you get a lot of email. I am yet another one who can't imagine life without this absolutely brilliant life style. Creating Zentangle art is more than a hobby to me. Not sure I can even tell this story without getting misty eyed.
"I accidentally found a video of yours one night on YouTube and watched it . . . Mooka
? Maybe that was it. My job then was the 10pm - 6 am shift, sitting in a dark room watching tv as individuals slept. I would do a check and change two times a night and sit the remainder of the time.
"Time moved so slowly. I'd think about my problems and fight sleep. I did crossword puzzles and word finds but got tired thinking so hard. One day I found your video and was intrigued. I thought to myself, "I can do this."
"The next night I went to work wearing a headlamp and started tangling. Something happened! Time started flying and my creative flow began. I was truly addicted. Zentangle is my drug. I started looking forward to my "alone" time. Zentangle took my mind off of my problems and gave me something to look forward to.
"I can't begin to tell you how much this whole experience has changed and helped me. It put a spark in me that keeps growing.
"Thank you for being so creative and sharing so much of yourselves with me and others. I love doing this and I have spread my love of everything Zentangle to my kids and to my friends and co-workers.
"From the bottom of my heart . . . thank you!" -LH
