These hands make music, teach, knit, heal, love, care for the sick, throw pots, build, love, care for the dying, write, paint, spin, reach out, bring beauty, come with compassion. These hands.
These hands belong to my friends.
(They like their mitts!) It was a great day yesterday catching up with a couple of old friends.
Back in May this dock was pretty empty, but look at it mid-August!
Aren’t you glad that you live in a world where hands can do this?
Which I found because somebody sent me this Pilobolus performance on Conan O’Brien’s show,
These people are incredible! I also watched this one, called “A Performance Merging Dance and Biology”. It is beautiful, and both dancers are plenty nice to watch, their movements, their muscles, their grace. But I don’t get the title… anybody help me out here? (This one is long, 14 minutes, but entrancing)
I started a sweater for dh out of the teal marl… got about 2 inches up from the bottom (in a circular 50 inch sweater) and realized I do not have enough yarn! Rip rip rip. So I started again in the olive. He wants just a plain plain sweater. I planned on doing a basic Elizabeth Zimmerman style sweater, where I can make up my mind about the top when I get there… maybe I can convince him that saddle shoulders are a good thing? I’ll build it up like the Cobblestone Pullover from Jared Flood. I may make this sweater versus the saddle shoulder. I like the shaping that is in this pattern. Has anybody made it?
