12:20-1:30 pm knit-to-the-sea at an abandoned bus stop…

A neighbor lady surprised me on her lunch break by coming right over and sitting on the bench with me!  After weeks of barely saying hi.  Like a wild animal tamed.  She said, “It is such a joyful way of connecting the community.”  She and her husband were wondering how much the yarn would cost me total.  I said I didn’t know but I invited her to save me coupons!  She was thrilled to help.  Then off she went.  Another lady with a dog said some encouraging words.  A walking couple stopped to ask about it.  Christo is someone people keep comparing me to.  “How long is it going to take?” one man asked.  I said, “I don’t know.”  The wife said, “It’s meditation–it’s supposed to be relaxing, not stressful!”  I’m surprised by how rarely my cellphone rings during sits.  Very bright out despite the cloud covering.
