Mary, Mary Quite Contrary How Does Your Garden Grow?

For the last four and a half years, I’ve become aware of many facets of my life I need to cultivate. I’ve realized the importance of establishing acquaintances/friendships old and new.  Let’s face it, making the effort to keep in touch is not easy.  Making a commitment requires follow-through, which I felt in the past, I didn’t have the time nor energy to do.  It always seemed like so many things got in the way.

After two years of deep soul searching and evaluation, it was time to make a commitment to myself in order for my garden to grow.  I’ve spent so many years pulling the weeds from someone else’s garden, it was time to fertilize my own.

Today I spent the afternoon with a friend from high school.  We’ve not seen each other for at least 25 years.

I found our high school graduation photos buried in a box of old photos.  She’s pictured on the (L) and I’m on the (R).

After all these years. I’m on the (L) and she’s on the (R).

I met her burro, Dusty.  He is so gentle.

Her dog Sebastian (L) and her father’s dog Buddy (R).  Buddy and I are buddies.  If he ever needs a new home my door is open.

We had a wonderful afternoon and plan on getting the rest of the group together in December.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.

    I’ve realized the importance of conversation with like-minded individuals. I’ve been taking apparel design classes, knitting classes and reaching out to my high school friends. Thank you for your nice compliment.
