Peace in the Process?

So often in knitting, and other handcraft, we find ourselves transported to a realm of peace. In ruminating on this phenomenon (because I’m a rational, logical sort of person), I find myself surfing the blogs I choose to read, though not all of them have a philosophical slant. But when I find one, even if it’s not related to handcraft or knitting in any way, I try to add them to my blog. Vixenpath is one that pertains to knitting and crochet. Ruinwen sweetly moves my mind to quiet contemplation. And Christy speaks of knitting and living life with one of the physical challenges I share with her, in a lyrical poetry that slows the breathing and heart rate in the same way yoga and meditation do for me.

But today, listening to my local public radio station, I was lulled into that same sort of quietude that knitting instills. And I discovered a writer very near to my home who also blogs about the natural beauty of Southwest Virginia, specifically Floyd County. So I ask you to visit the blog Fragments From Floyd. Not only will you read pieces that offer some sense of calm but you’ll view amazing photos of the area very near to the city in which I live. We really are quite beautiful here in this part of the state. And I’m not the photographer to do it justice. The writer at Fragments from Floyd is.

I too enjoyed the fragments from Floyd piece on WVTF today. They have him on there frequently and he is a wonderfully introspective writer. Have a relaxing weekend!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
