Not to be pretentious or anything, but I keep thinking about that Kierkegaard quote, â€œIt is perfectly true, as philosophers say, that life must be understood backwards. But they forget the other proposition, that it must be lived forwards.â€
That’s on my mind a lot these days, as I wander toward the hem of my life. It’s pretty meditative, this Knit Your Life project. I took it off the needles to see what things were looking like.
Tangly is what they look like. Here’s the front:
Here’s a side view, showing the back side on the right. Remember, the calm, easy side is what life is supposed to be.
Here’s the other side view. Random wanderings happen especially at the margins.
Still enjoying this a lot. Beginning to have superstitious feeling that I can’t ever cast off this hem. Maybe I’ll just leave the stitches on a holder down there. Don’t want to end anything too soon . . .
