I have been feeling frustrated because all the pain medications I’m taking make it difficult for me to function normally.
The part of my life that I miss most is being creative. My mind is blocked in a way that it never has been before and there are moments when I feel cut off from who I used to be.
Last night I felt a spark. While I was clicking through pages on Pinterest I found something called ‘Zentangle’ that is “an abstract drawing created using repetitive patterns… intended to make the act of drawing pleasurable, meditative and accessible to all”.
This art form does not require any structure or major concentration. The images you can create from just drawing lines are beautiful.
I believe I have found my new creative outlet.
