Statement

On the day of our first robe project meeting, my horoscope read: “Today is an 8. The urge to actually produce something is becoming overwhelming. Do it for the sake of artistic expression and just for the fun of it.”

So, I went for the fun. As I knitted and crocheted, the robe reminded me of a landscape. My life? Up and down, hills and valleys, falling down holes, going in circles, socked in by darkness, finding the light. Where is it going? Why won’t this bit fit? Take it apart and try again. Oh, but the pleasure and frustration of getting there. The glow of the colors. The love that ties pieces together. And the cozy, comfy warmth as it wraps me up like a hug. A blessing. Some days have been 3’s and 4’s. Today may even be a 9.
