I wanted to thank all of you for your well wishes and prayers. That truly means a lot to me. I am fortunate that I have all of you to make me feel better. Now, I wait two weeks for the molding of my teeth to be complete, at which point I can have my current teeth extracted. I was able to progress from broth, to different sorts of soups pureed in the Magic Bullet, and last night I moved up to eggs. But, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for all of your best wishes for me. Especially at a time when the world has quickly gone angry and cold, with people thrashing back at life. I wish they could feel warmth and love that I feel from you. Perhaps the world would be a touch better if everyone picked up knitting.
There is always a sense of reflection, of meditation as you work through your knits and purls, a higher sense of self awareness is learned, a deeper sense of compassion felt at the edge of the soul. When you become a knitter you think about things a little differently, you approach life with a sense of calm, with an aura of ease. Knitters, I think are a different breed of people. Their knitting usually ends up as gifts for others; they appreciate the natural world moving swiftly through their fingers in the form of fibers.
So, maybe the world would be a better, calmer, more compassionate place if everyone were to learn to knit.
