I will be teaching an introduction to Zentangle Class for those who are new to Zentangle or for anyone who has already taken a class from me. I will sharing some new Tangles and I will also discuss how I create my Zentangle Inspired Art, like these watercolors with Zentangle added to help inspire your own Zentangle Creations. Come and have some fun!
I am Mykiss, and I have heard that you want to know more about me. I am an American River Keeper, but that is more a title, I am an Undine or what is more commonly called a mermaid. I keep the rivers here on the North American continent in balance as much as possible and do all I can to help the ecosystem of the rivers flourishing. There are many other beings who help with this process and who I work with every day. I also encourage the humans who love the rivers I protect to help as best they can. I am hoping by sharing about myself that this will encourage you as well.
My main job is helping the different species of fish to the spawning grounds and encourage the little wee ones out of their eggs and into the safe places in the river for the to grow. I lead them away from pollution and trash as much as possible which is not an easy task, especially this year with all the flooding. I ask you to think about what you want for your wee ones, for we are all connected. I do look after your young children too when they come to fish or play in the rivers for once they enter my domain they are my responsibility as well. I help open their eyes to the wonders of the river, the fish, plants, animals, and insects that create this diverse ecosystem and the magical connection they have to each other. Not many of you humans come to the river as adults with wonder in your hearts, so you are difficult to connect with.
You do have the power to change that within yourself. You can come to the river and ask me to show you the wonder you have missed. Set quietly and watch, listen, and let your sense tell you the story of the river. Well it is spring and I have to be going, perhaps I will tell you more later!
