On Sunday night I was occupied with celebrating a wedding in New Orleans, and missed the live telecast of the Tony Awards. So it was only last night that I watched some of the best bits on YouTube. I think we all need some uplift, so here goes, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s acceptance-speech sonnet:
I’m not embarrassed; I’ve long known that it’s a blessing to be easily entertained. I like seeing a young man rock floral sleeves, or a patchwork suit jacket, as if it’s nothing at all. These are the things that can make me smile despite everything bad in the world.
You’ll also be happy to know that my Fort Tryon Wrap is back in third-color territory. Thank you, dear knitters in the comments, for validating my compulsiveness. I thought I was alone in this, but assuredly I am not. Onward! May we fix our mistakes, every last one, knitting-related or otherwise.
