I had seen gems being used in zentangle since forever, and I finally decided to try it out. It used to look so complicated to make, but once I started, I realized that I was mistaken.
See that picture up there? That was the first gemdala (termed by me) that I made and actually liked. Since then, I have obsessively drawn, coloured and used gems in my zentangle like a hyperactive lunatic. Which I am, of course. Sometimes.
Hello, world! I thought I’d got enough opinions from many bloggers and thought it’d better start. After thinking, I thought I should write about red pandas as asked by Mukta in the comments of A New Series. So, here goes! Nononono, but first, a picture….
Isn’t it soo cute?

I did a fair lot of writing, reached 80 followers, found some cool blogs, made myself a button, had some decent post ideas and got to unleash my poetic side by getting involved in NaPoWriMo. But then I thought… Why do people read the stuff I write? Many other bloggers have had this thought, and now it’s my turn. *shrugs*
There are some rather noticeable things about my blog. One thing is, my about page doesn’t reveal much about me. So I have decided it’s time for you to get to know me better. It’s time I told you who I am. Are you ready for the bumpiest mind-ride you’re ever going to have? Continue reading “Let’s Take a Ride Through My Head”→

In other words, it is a creative form of meditation.
