Walking along beneath a big umbrella in the rain that has been dumping inches all week, and I couldn’t be happier about that. I’ve got a lot of thoughts I want to write about in the coming weeks, but want to pace myself through them so I’m not spent way before my new design is ready. As I mentioned nearly every recent post, I’m entertaining myself connecting elements into a sort of sprawling theme, of veils & variations, and whatever else jumps in my way to shape it as it goes, and let me tell you, I’ve got a great heap of knitting to do before I’m finished with it, but I want to take the time it demands and give it my best.
While I knit I have been contemplating with great nostalgia to be back in my house again, moving between the rooms, and the sun beams through the windows. But the situation requires I wait many months yet, so I’m trying very hard to concentrate on the present moment. Today I’ve had a beautiful walk through the woods, retracing my old trails again and seeing the forest heal a little more, and life is good.
