on the brain
I’ve been trying to meditate a bit each day (with varying degrees of success). So I decided to make this the “year of the brain” in terms of what I read. I ran across an old friend who shared the titles of a number of good brain books (my favorite so far is Dan Siegel’s Mindsight *) and a few of us meet once a month to talk about what we are learning and watch a series of videos.
It turns out the brain has a lot more plasticity than folks thought and there is much you can do to improve its function. I bet Zentangle is really great for your brain. 🙂 I wonder what the brain of an artist looks like?
Here’s my calendar page for the last few days. Still playing with stripes of patterns.
patterns: sevaw, seminole patchwork, spention, and yuma
materials: tangle*a*day calendar, black micron, and pencil
