I feel like I’ve been in a rush this week. I was called for Jury Duty, so this week I spent most of my time in a courtroom. This is the fourth time I’ve been summoned for jury duty since I moved to San Diego. I served on one jury about five years ago in which a verdict was reached. That trial took about a two weeks. This time, the trial would have lasted eight to ten weeks. It is a high profile trial in my area and the process to pick a jury was grueling. I requested to be dismissed from serving on this jury. The thought of condemning anyone to a life in prison or perhaps the death penalty was more than I could handle. Call me a sissy, or a coward, but I just couldn’t see myself making that kind of judgement on my fellow man. For one thing the prison system is atrocious and I don’t believe in the death penalty. So this was definitely the wrong trial for me to participate in. I’m so relieved the judge let me off the hook and dismissed me from this trial. So now I’m happy to be back to my regular routines.
This week’s Diva Challenge called for using two different tangles in the same Zentangle Inspired Art Drawing. The tangles are Cirquital and Opus. Here is what I managed to draw today.
I’m relieved that I got this one finished, but I neglected to write down the various tangles I used inside the Cirquital tangle. I did them mostly from memory.
I hope you like what I’ve come up with. I’d love to know what you think of it. Feel free to leave a comment. Have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
