and so it is christmas...

i am living in a girls house.  no i haven't been sent there because of the bad things i do, but because my life has changed.  my sweet friend and i relocated to my sisters house which is about 1.5 hours from where we used to live.  the big guy is still there, staying with friends who offered a room so he could continue the life he is making for himself.  and the person who used to be my husband lives on the coast across country from here.

so we are experiencing new perspectives.  i am relearning things that somehow got lost in the shuffle.  and i am trying to be at peace.

knitting helps.  it keeps me focused and quiet; creating something lovely for someone,  maybe even me.

and though i know everything happens for a reason and it will all work out in the end, this transition makes me feel blurry and unfocused.

and so i keep knitting.  i have most of my knitting items here;  i think there is a box of knitting books in storage which i could probably locate if needed, but for the most part, i have what i need to continue creating things.  and i have the love and support of my children and friends.  that is quite a gift at christmas.  may your holidays be as full.

Oh, friend. I'm so sorry.
You are wise to keep your hands busy, and D. and I sending you hugs and hearts across the miles. ♥

Christmas - or Solstice, or Hanukkah celebrates the triumph of light against darkness. Light will win.

I'm sorry that this has happened - and do know that you're welcome to come for a visit across the pond, should the mood strike you. Truly.
