Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day 2015 Challenge
Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #201: “Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day 2015”. So here is what the Diva says this week “Moebius Syndrome is a congenital nerve disorder affecting cranial VI and VII nerves controlling the lateral movement of his face. Moebius is a spectrum disorder – so some cases are more severe than others …Not a lot of people know about Moebius Syndrome, which is not surprising given the odds of having a child with Moebius is 1-2:1,000,000 …There’s currently about 5,000 people on the planet with Moebius Syndrome.
When Artoo was first born and we’d take him to the hospital for emergencies, we’d tell the doctors that he has Moebius Syndrome and they would say: “What’s that?”Â We’ve had to become the experts on the syndrome, and the advocates for our child, finding our way through the haze of the medical system.
I also want to stress here that Moebius Syndrome isÂ NOT A DISEASE, it’s aÂ disorderÂ affecting his nerves. Â The word disease implies that he is sick, or that he could ‘get better’. Â A lot of people assume that people who have Moebius Syndrome are mentally disabled because of their facial paralysis. Â This is simply not true. Â It does not affect intelligence. … To raise awareness for this disorder is this week’s Challenge. Use the Moebius Syndrome Foundation’s logo as your string” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using the Moebius symbol as a string.
Zentangle Enticed Me
Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and am putting my attention to it. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! I do have a lot of trouble drawing that string 🙂 Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!! I am still catching up on replying to your comments – but I will 🙂
Which Tangle is Which?
The (approximate) Moebius String is drawn in yellow to call attention to it.Â The tangle Barberpole fills the strip itself.Â Inside the symbol (in the “holes”) is Florz, again in yellow to highlight Moebius.Â The upper left corner starts with the marbles called Jetties.Â Next is Coaster – like a fan or a roller coaster.Â Piano is next with the piano keys.Â In the bottom left corner is Poke Leaf in pink rising up and PokeRoot in purple coming down.Â The flowing water in the upper right corner is Nipa.Â Then you have the Coaster winding around to the right, ending in Piano. There you have it!! 🙂
I am organizing my studio again to be able to work and a table has tons of stuff dumped on it – and more stuff is dumped in there from the holidays!! (My studio always gets filled up when there are projects in the house that need a place to dump a bunch of stuff for awhile!! LOL!!) Thank you for stopping by!! I LOVE comments!! ~ Diane Clancy
