There are a lot of changes happening in my life right now, and some of them are a bit challenging. But knitting helps me take the long view.
I like to write, but I've always felt guilty that I don't journal. I just can't get into a rhythm. But I knit. And my knitting is turning out to be a pretty good memory keeper, reminding me of who I was, and the good things and the struggles. It reminds me of who I want to be, who I've planned to be, how those plans have changed and what things I need to rediscover.
I'm grateful for my queue, and even though it becomes overwhelming occasionally, I'm grateful that it's so long. I'm glad that there is more out there that I want to do, things to learn, simple projects that just look like fun, things that will trap memories I've yet to make.
I'm grateful for the long view, and I'm grateful that knitting is one thing that keeps me looking up, toward the person I was and to the life greeting me on the horizon.
