May 10, 2012, Second Knit at 16th and Taylor, 11:00 am – noon
V. and C. came and we sat on the bench together. V. said her middle name had been Constance before she changed it to Elwa, the name of a river. I felt nervous with C. running across the street alone. I enjoyed her heart-shaped glasses. I feel my heart opening up as a result of this project, and people’s response to it. C. let me hold her and she gave me a wonderful hug. So sunny and pretty out. Little clouds floating by.
V. and C. went for a little jaunt with a big grey poodle.
I talked to a man who called my thing a “happening.” I still don’t have a clear idea what that is. Met J. and her frowning daughter V. (J. is very pregnant. Baby on the way–in one month.)
Today I gave credit to “good fortune” for my wool being on sale. I wish I had said grace or providence.
I’m so glad I have an hour with nothing on the agenda except to knit and be present to people. Two days ago, T. lent me a book…and it’s the same color as my wool. I think I’m supposed to read it.
