“The most important thing is not to win but to take part!"
Rho goes on to say:
"In other words, the outcome is not as important as participating in the process. It is the act of being involved that is the greatest victory of all; pushing beyond our personal boundaries, reaching outside our comfort zone, striving to do our best. The results become the “icing on the cake” for our personal journey along the way.
It is this same message that is at the heart of Zentangle, the outcome is not as important as the process. It is the journey each one of us takes one stroke at a time, every time we take our pen and put it to paper. What better way to honor the heart of both endeavors than to have an Olympic inspired Diva Challenge less than a month away from the 2012 Olympic Games in London?"When I first saw the challenge with the above I didn't dream of taking part, even less so when I started looking at the entries submitted. But, a seed had lodged itself in my mind & I wanted to see how the Olympic logo's rings intertwined & started deconstructing them with pencil & paper. Once I'd worked out how to replicate the logo I combined it with a "Z" string (the basis for a little task I'm involved with on the Chocolate Baroque Forum) in my Rhodia Notebook. Working in my notebook is itself a milestone for me as I'm actually working IN my book not just looking at it afraid of making a mistake & spoiling the page.
