Life is a big ball of yarn and has so many twists and turns, where colors intersect and when knitted together, can be in harmony. Well, that’s unless you made a sweater with 3 arms and 2 neck holes. 🙂
It’s A Destination
But, for me, it’s a Destination, a destination of continuous discovery and exploration. Discovering things long lost about who I am. To find what I didn’t know. What I didn’t know I had and how it all fits together in a new way. It’s a journey that I feel has to be shared. I share to help set me free. As I share my vulnerabilities on these pages. I hope you find something too!
I think it’s a good thing to share this journey with people, so I’m happy to be doing this. But, there are fears as well. I have been having a lot of fun playing with and finding the hidden things that I think are important for me to know about myself.
Pick A Good Starting Point
Starting with an end of the yarn and weaving my way and not very gracefully, mind you, thru all the passages presented for me to chose. The dead ends, the never ends and mysteries that await discovery.
I have an interest in photography and I think it would be interesting to get a photo taken, and then take a photo of me with the kids dog in that photo. What kind of selfie would that be? Heck I already have a picture. 🙂
Life is a big ball of yarn and has so many twists and turns, where colors intersect and when knitted together, can be in harmony. You can learn all about different yarn weights, knitting techniques, and ways to create your own yarns and patterns by visiting Knitting and Crochet sites.
Vimeo and YouTube have videos of all types where you can even learn how to use a sewing needle or machine. You may find that learning to knit and crochet can be a fun and rewarding way to spend time with your kids. Explore that big ball of yarn together.
Real Life Can Be Chaos
However, much like real life. A big ball of yarn can can be entirely chaos. A chaotic balance. A dance among dances. Alone or with others. At times this conglomeration is frustrating for me to deal with. My perseverance has saved me from many things. Including death.
Perhaps used in a team building/family sort of way a big ball of yarn can introduce all of us to finding balance amongst the chaos.
My Life Has Not Been A Dance
We’re all forgetting to dance. To arrive at no place except being where you are will allow you to live a life that is a big ball of yarn. Weaving and wandering with no particular destination in sight, can be meaningful.
The Largest Ball Of Twine
Oh, go look at the big ball, won’t you? 🙂

“Weaving and wandering with no particular destination in sight, can be meaningful.”
… And insightful.
So very true, Thank you for your insights. :-). :
Great video, we do forget to dance, when we are caught up in the world’s idea of how we should live. I gave those ideas up, I went back to my nature, and I dance to my hearts content. Your words are so strong. 🙂 thank you.
I had to watch the video a couple times. Inspiring.
I’ve been listening to Alan Watts, stuff for quite awhile. I don’t understand it all, and feel that listening to the videos along with audio help me with mindfulness and depression. I’m glad that you liked the video. 🙂
It was very interesting, I watched others ones of his also. Had never heard of him
