And so, with 30 days ahead of us, some of which we all know will be less than fabulous, I think I am going to try something different. I am going to REALLY try for an interactive blog.
I know! It's a radical idea, BUT, I also know there are so many people out there reading this who WANT to be heard and who NEED to be heard and so, what the hell. I'm going to give this a whirl.
It might be a dismal failure, BUT, it might also be an awesome success.
I am going to post a little something from the book, Words of Wisdom for Women by Rachel Snyder, each day. I will randomly open to a page and I will copy it here.
Does a word, a line, the quote of the day or the song of the day help you pause, even if for the time it took you to read this and help you have a feeling of (fill in the blank). Perhaps it will be gratitude. It may be sadness. It may be melancholy It may be delight. Feelings just ARE. I would love for YOU to share your thoughts in the comments. Please.
Knit by the fire in the autumn of the year. Knit all winter long, woolen socks and mittens, hats and leggings. Knit a magical scarf that tells magical stories, mystical yarns. Knit ten thousand stitches and, at every stitch, recite a prayer. Knit with wool, cotton, hand-spun yarns, curlicued and mohair soft and furry, Knit, purl, knit, purl. Knit a family together. Knit a community together, drawing each thread closer and linking with the others. Knit a row, purl a row, knit a row, purl a row. Knit for the baby not yet born a hooded shawl, tiny feet warmers, a blanket dyed with marigold's gold. Knit with your great-aunt's needles, smooth wood or ivory, the mouths of whales, clicking softly, softly. Knit and purl, and knit and purl, and knit and purl, and knit.
Take a lookin' round, round.
Cos it's only getting better,
S'only getting better now my love.
