The Diva’s challenge this week (#251) is to use the Moebius Syndrome Foundation as a “string” and create a Zentangle tile or Zendala, incorporating the Moebius Syndrome Foundation color purple if desired. The Diva’s youngest son Artoo was diagnosed with Moebius Syndrome when he was born.

When I read the challenge, I must confess I didn’t know what Moebius Syndrome is. From the Diva’s post, I learned that it is a congenital nerve disorder affecting cranial VI and VII nerves controlling the lateral movement of the face. Artoo sure is a cute little guy!

I found the logo challenging in an Escher sort of way, with its twists and turns. Here it is, posted just as Moebuis Awareness Day begins at 12:22 a.m. on Sunday, January 25, 2016. Note the purple chop ….

In response to the Diva’s challenge to go back to the old school (i.e., 3.5 x 3.5″ white tile, black micron 01 pen & Zentangle pencil), I decided to take a page from my own Basics class and work with the tangles we learn first. I’ve created several from the 7 tangles we learn in Basics, and this one is one of my favorites.

 

My basics tangles are like old friends – comfortable, warm, easy – and it’s so natural with these old friends to slip into that Zen place of easy focus, joyous creation and fun. For those of you who have taken my Basics class, do you recognize these tangles?
