I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your nephew. So young and clearly much loved.

May 2012 bring you joy and peace after your stormy time.


My condolences on the loss of your nephew - a sad time for you and your family. The past 12 months have been challenging for you. I wish you peace and good health in 2012.

What a grievous loss to face just before Christmas -- I'm so sorry! But it does sound as if you've managed to wrangle up some of the season's peace and joy after all. I hope you find even more of the same in 2012. (and I'm curious to see if I can track you down on Ravelry -- I'm there as Materfamilias -- my daughter, a new knitter, has been looking for a good dog sweater pattern)

Oh, gosh, you certainly have had more than your share of bad stuff, haven't you? I am so sorry to hear about your nephew. That is so very, very sad.

Good news from your consultant though - that I am VERY glad to hear! I might raise a glass with you, if I weren't suffering from some vicious bug which attacked me yesterday.

The little dog coat looks great! I have a pattern for a greyhound coat which I'm going to tackle sometime in the new year.

Love the poem. :)

I was so sorry to read about your nephew.

Good to hear your appointment with your consultant was so positive. Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy 2012.

Wishing you continued blessings in the new year!

My sympathies on the loss of your nephew. Very sad.
I am behind in my blog reading so I am just now paying you a long-planned virtual visit. Glad to know you are a fellow knitter.Although I go through lots of dry periods I always like perusing the yarn shop offerings. The doggie coat is truly adorable and Little Miss P seems quite pleased to be modeling it. I was wondering if you read Jane Brocket's blog. She is one of my favorites in the domestic arts category. I am also happy to know your health is back. Looking forward to reading your posts in this new year. With my best wishes...Monica

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.

    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.

    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.

    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?

    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
