Hi everyone.  I'm sorry but there will be no Zendala Dare this week.  Check back next week for an all new Dare.


  1. Praying for whatever is going on in your life. Take care.

  2. Oh dear, Erin. Better to have things in your life soon back on an even keel than entertain zen junkies week for week! You are a workaholic and have taken on a stray bunch of global scribblers gobbling up your weekly offer to add to your load.
    Seriously, though,we only have so much energy and if you are losing sleep or under pressure to the point that you can't regenerate, it will seriously hurt you and yours.
    People hate being given advice. But there is a trick that might help. We women multitask a lot. You might try to cut down on the multitasking and take one step at a time until you have caught up with yourself.
    The zen brood does not need a new dare every week. The zen brood could get on with it alone for a bit, or maybe the regulars could offer a dare in rotation for you to simply post without having had the work of preparing it. Technically that's no problem either. A simple link with the instruction to post entries to your blog would do the trick.
    Most of all, you need to decide what will be most important in the near future, and not change the priority as soon as things are running smoothly.
    Yes, people are fickle. You might lose some of your contributors in the process, but does that matter?
    I'm an observer in this zen drawing world, and often quite alarmed at the group dynamic. Don't let it get at you. The "group" is a hungry animal!

  3. Thinking of you Erin, and hoping all is well.
