“What I want to say is
that the past is the past,
and the present is what your life is,
and you are capable
of choosing what will be,
So come to the pond,
or the river of your imagination,
or the harbor of your longing,
and put your lips to the world.
– “Mornings at Blackwater,” by Mary Oliver
I stole this poem from one of the blogs that I (simply) adore… Bedlam Farm Journal. A wonderfully insightful blog with the most beautiful photographs and a chronicle of a “simpler” life (0f sorts.)
So, what does this have to do with knitting? Not a thing – other than that I realize that what Mary Oliver says, that the past is the past, and today is my responsibility. Nobody else is responsible for making me happy, bringing me success, etc. AND on the flip side, nobody but me is at fault, either. Removing the victim from my life.
Wait ’til you see my Senorita Lolita sweater in progress! It’s gonna be cute! 🙂
