" Diamonds " - Weekly Challenge #58

The theme for drawing this week's Zentangle or ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) challenge has been offered by Diana Hirsch, CZT.  Diana says:  "The Four Diamonds Fund was started by Charles and Irma Millard after their son, Christopher, lost his 3 year battle with cancer in 1972.   Symbolic of the traits Christopher felt were needed to defeat cancer, he wrote a story in which the knight Sir Millard overcomes obstacles to achieve the four diamonds of Courage, Wisdom, Honesty and Strength."

While meditating over this tile, I found my peripheral thoughts very open and allowing apprehension to enter.  Hmmm.  What's going on? 

I was so concerned with "doing justice" to the diamond that I lost track of the Zentangle methodology.  The outcome was a bit of a surprise.
