This week's challenge from the DivaCZT is to tangle while you're in motion: in a car, on a train, some place where you're being bumped around a bit.
Two or three years ago I replaced my computer desk chair with a big red bouncy ball. ('Exercise' ball sounds so uninviting.) I decided to tangle while bouncing vigorously.

Along the top: some of my all-time favorite Zentangle (R) tiles.

On the right, the blue bin which now contains all my files
since I weeded and dumped many of them a few months ago.
I used Tipple, Knightsbridge, Hollibaugh, and Phuds. I chose Phuds at the end because it doesn't require a lot of drawing and has some solid blacks. Although, I think the most difficult thing for me with this type of project is not being able to do good solid blacks.
I took hold of my pencil and started bouncing. Up and down and up and down! Dots. Border. I love the wibbly-wobbly border that happened! Bounce bounce. String. A simple 'X' with four sections. Up and down and up and down! Now the pen. Tipple. Knightsbridge. Hollibaugh. Bounce bounce bounce! Phuds. Shading. Up and down and up and down!
At one point I got so into the bouncing I put my pen down and started waving my arms side to side. Up and down and up and down! I had a drink of my iced coffee.
That was an ill-considered move.
Here's my tile.
