One of the bonuses I’ve received from embarking on my Zentangle journey has been the new friends I have made. Recently, I was contacted by a new CZT who was going to be in the La Jolla area for a few days and wondered if I’d be teaching any classes. I wasn’t, but I thought it would still be fun to get together and share “our stories”. So a lunch date was made … and I took the opportunity to invite other CZT’s from here in San Diego to join us.
Last Monday, Lauryn Eldon, CZT #18 from Massachusetts, met fellow CZT’s Suzanne Wilka (#4), Denise Knobloch (#8) and myself (#14) for a very enjoyable couple hours of lunch and Zentangle talk! I realized that never in a million years would I have invited a “stranger” to have lunch with me … but knowing the Zentangle community through seminar and my local friends, I really looked forward to meeting Lauryn and sharing San Diego stories with her.
She shared a couple awesome books that she makes … two sizes for Zentangle … one for regular tiles and one for Bijous. I couldn’t help but buy the beautiful green and purple book for my Bijous. The other ladies couldn’t help themselves either! Nice bonus for our lunch time visit – shopping while seated at our table. It was a great afternoon spent with my Zentangle friends …
