The ruminations of an artist on art & life...art quilts, beading, knitting, drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking are all my passions, I love to explore creating....

Poetic Knitting

Somehow, this poem made me think of my knitting. The socks (or the beginning of socks) here are a nice mix of hemp and cotton, the hat all cotton; both are lovely yarns to knit with. The hat is destined for an Alaskan fisherman's head, and match the hat I knit for his new baby boy.

EXPERIENCE

by Emily Dickinson

I stepped from Plank to Plank
A slow and cautious way
The Stars about my Head I felt
About my feet the sea.
I know not but the next
Would be my final inch---
This gave me that precarious Gait
Some call Experience.

"Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save."----Will Rogers
