Thank you to all of you for the wonderful support you have been giving me. Your feedback is really appreciated since I live up here amongst wild (plenty of reindeer, few beautiful and timid deer, a bear has been seen walking through the yard in haste, wolf tracks just a few meters from the house, few foxes) and tame (a cat, three dogs) animals and human contact is at times rare. I can sometimes go for days without really meeting anyone.
I am never lonely as there is always so much going on and I am living up here after my own choosing (every now and then I need to remind myself of that fact). The downside of my lifestyle is that crossing over to the civilization becomes a task and that I easily can act like my neighbors when a human is sighted; you either run or hide... I realize this is not good. But then when I turn off TV, radio and computer the world goes away and I can be free to roam in my own thoughts (occasionally I do arrive at dead end) and creative endeavors and this is good.
I knit and I rip, I try and I try again, I knit and I rip (it does sound like cul de sac, does it not?) and just can't get it right. Repeat that for seven days in a row or ten days in a row. What makes it so difficult is the fact, that if there is the right answer, it is inside the head and I just can't find the way to fish it out from there and at the same time the thought that the pond is finally empty is hovering all around.
Okey, I know I am referring to a little cardigan here and nothing grand but then a little cardigan can take huge proportions in a little brain. Anyway, it is easy to talk about this today because, I think I have got it right now! And today I really don't understand why it was so hard yesterday or the day before. It is all so obvious now.
Before I throw myself into another pitfall, I will take a little walk to see if I can find new deer tracks if not the real creatures.
All is fine - wool be with you!
