Quote of the Day, Life

"Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties." - Eric Fromm, psychologist

I was "certain" that I was going to ruin this cap when I started with my black permanent pen's first stroke. I had purchased it over a month ago desiring to add zentangles to it. Finally I took a deep breath, let go of my certainty and started drawing. I like how it turned out.

Quote of the day and Zentangle (Snake)

"Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher." -William Wordsworth

Yesterday, Bob and I were working in the yard and a snake slithered across the grass in front of me then under a bush. It was dark gray with a yellow stripe.

I have searched the internet trying to discover what kind of snake it is, but haven't found one that looks like it. If you know, please let me know.

We spent most of the day, in the yard. We moved our smoke bush from the back yard to the front hard. It wasn't "smoking" because it didn't get enough sun. Hopefully it will love the new location and "smoke" for us.
