Sprain

Maria writes:
Spraining your wrist kinda knocks the wind out you. I keep thinking I should be able to do (seemingly) simple things, but then I realize it was dumb to even try.

So I decided to tangle left-handed for a while and "feel the burn," as in a "difficult exercise!"

I slowed down and appreciated and understood the intimidation some people have when they first start tangling. Their comments are often, "No way can I EVER do this!"

And now here I'm saying, "No way can I draw with my non-dominant hand!" But, after all is tangled and done, I realize as long as my shaking is consistent throughout my tangling, it all looks pretty darn cool!

Bummer about your wrist, Maria. Although it sure makes for a stunning example about the non dominant hand. It also goes to show that when beauty exists somewhere, it will find its way forward. Thank you!

Amazing Maria!!!! Hope you feel better soon! But without the injury, this tangle would never have happened.

Very Cool ... hope your wrist gets better soon ... it is a bummer when that happens! Perhaps a sign you do need to take it easy (not that I can see that happening - lol) x

I'm so sorry to hear about your wrist! 'Sending healing energy to you. Meanwhile, your tile is gorgeous. No matter which hand/wrist you use, your work is always beautiful and motivating. Wonder what would happen if you tangled with your toes....hmmmmm...
