I’ve enjoyed some quiet time knitting over the past couple of much-enjoyed holiday days and I’ve learned two things.
1. Don’t leave your knitting out where the dogs (or more specifically, Maya) can get at it.
2. The practice of knitting, whether it is the rhythm of the process or just sitting quietly and relaxing, invites ideas for writing to come into one’s mind.
I was up at 5:30 today and have spent much of the morning at the computer. I’m deep into the second draft of my memoir today and it’s flowing! Oh, what a feeling!
