just LOVE

Sometimes there is beauty and tragedy all at once. Maybe always. Watch your back!! My niece was born just a couple hours after my father suddenly died. These are strange days.


One of my very nearest and dearest is eloping with her beloved, right at the time there is heartbreak in her family.


And all we can do is hang on to the trapeze until we make the catch, or finally let go and let the net do its job.


I will admit in the last few weeks I have not accomplished much. Perhaps my heart has opened in new ways. Been crushed in others.


But I did manage to do a little knitting.


For the bittersweet occasion of a beloved's union?


something old

(Grandma Amelia's crocheted table centerpiece...)


something new:

(cozy shrug for the cold winter to come.)


something borrowed:

(my rock and roll wonder-woman bracelet, keeps away stupid people and sadness)


and something blue:

(the blue ribbon for the most loving, compassionate, generous, creative, beautiful soul in the world, and her one true love.)


love is all there is.


Music in the HOUSE!
