I read an article in the Washington Post entitled Olympic Knitting by Ruth Marcus. I couldn’t wait to read it! She compares the two by saying how both conjure something out of virtually nothing – the blank page, a ball of yarn. “Yup”, I am thinking. Both processes are mined with frustration: the column simply wasn’t […]Read more "Knitting Parallels Writing"
What’s Old is New, Again aside ~ It’s always wiser to begin these posts NOT reading Freshly Pressed blogs…. there are some awfully great writers out there!

Maybe, purposeful to distract you from the word, me. I am […]Read more "Getting to Know Me, Part Two of Three"

I am not really knowing which came first, the horse or the cart regarding this most recent project called “yoga”.

Bloom Where You Are ~ So, the title of this blog. Let me explain. Of course, we may all be familiar with the expression, bloom where you are planted.
