A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Let Go and Start Fresh

If I want to live my life in a creative way, as an artist, I have to not look back…too much.  I have to be willing to take whatever I’ve done and whoever I was and toss ’em away.

Mental prejudices, faulty education–these things will only lead to a blank pain of incomprehension.  It is time to begin transformation–though it may take centuries before I can truly see any difference.

The jump is so frightening between where I am and where I want to be.  Because of all, I may become…I will close my eyes and leap.

My identity must always be determined by irredeemable pasts and irrepressible futures.  Life is hard. I aim for a 19th century patience and prepare to display a 22nd century innovative-ness. Most of all, I must try.

Today’s Free knitting pattern (to Ravelry members) is An Awful Lot of Running To Do cuff-down sock.   Use coupon code at check-out RAINBOWSRULE, good ’til the Winter Olympics next month.   Thanks, Leslie, for the nice gift.

Foxy key cozy for the crocheters, complimentary of Susanne Madsen.  Download your copy here.

When you make any of these patterns, I would love to see the finished pictures…please.

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

  1. I am in a very similar place in life. And yes, we can only try, and that is all. We can’t accomplish without trying, and we can’t better ourselves either. I often feel overwhelmed about what I must do, trick myself into being positive while running fast from negatives which nip at my heels. Feeling satisfied is the hardest thing to do sometimes. 🙂 xx

  2. Thank you Sarah, for these insightful and wise thoughts. I am older than you are and would like to add something: We should try and forgive outselves if we fail.
