It’s been hard to be cheery this week. With hurricanes and wildfires added to the usual-for-2017 political shenanigans, things are feeling ever more apocalyptic, and even though those things are far away from me, the heavy grey skies aren’t really helping. I love those heavy grey skies! But it’s definitely gloomy.
Fortunately, there is always making. Making things feels good. It’s grounding. It’s calming. It connects you to the world, it unites your hands and your mind. I’m not convinced that craft is inherently an act of resistance, but it certainly has that potential, and even if all it does is keep me sane in hard times – I’ll take it.
