crochet and snow
light and shadow
from 2009, I think. . .
I was going to crochet some new things again this winter, but couldn't decide which project to tackle first. Another scarf, an afghan, something completely different? So all I accomplished in the end was finding and organizing my yarns and crochet needles. That in itself felt like quite an accomplishment, so I'll enjoy how that feels for a while.
I've been thinking a bit more about blogging. How it's changed over the years. How I've changed over the years. How I really don't want to completely let go of blogging, but how I need this blog to be different going forward. So for now I've added a new subtitle at the top. "random passions" Maybe that will tie together the rather disjointed posts I've managed to squeeze out lately. :) I have a strong feeling that this simple addition will inspire me to post more often.
When I started blogging, I was so delighted to have a place online to put all my words, and to actually find so many wonderful people to connect with! It seems to me that I had so many more words waiting to be expressed back then. These days I find myself with few words to share much of the time. I often find myself thinking in images, colors, and emoticons instead. :) It feels like too much trouble to put them into words, because the words either won't be read anymore, or worse - they will be misunderstood.
Then I found this quote on tumblr this morning ( I LOVE tumblr!), and I had one of those "AHA!!!!" moments.
“Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood?
Pythagoras was misunderstood,
and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh.
To be great is to be misunderstood.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Not that I'm comparing myself to any of these great thinkers, but it does put things into perspective doesn't it.?
