Knitting Temperature

February 2015

February 2015

February 2015 like January has been colder than normal.  There are some benefits to cold weather there is less snow and I am all for that.  It has been over 30 days since we have seen a day that was 0°C or above.  The average temperature in February should be O°C.
To Winter
 William Blake
O winter! bar thine adamantine doors:
The north is thine; there hast thou built thy dark
Deep-founded habitation. Shake not thy roofs
Nor bend thy pillars with thine iron car.

He hears me not, but o’er the yawning deep
Rides heavy; his storms are unchain’d, sheathed
In ribbed steel; I dare not lift mine eyes;
For he hath rear’d his sceptre o’er the world.

Lo! now the direful monster, whose skin clings
To his strong bones, strides o’er the groaning rocks:
He withers all in silence, and in his hand
Unclothes the earth, and freezes up frail life.

He takes his seat upon the cliffs, the mariner
Cries in vain. Poor little wretch! that deal’st
With storms, till heaven smiles, and the monster
Is driven yelling to his caves beneath Mount Hecla.

Human Spirit


Like sand on a beach our lives are constantly changing, evolving and adapting to the influences of the world around us.

Embracing this inescapable truth provides each of us with the tools necessary struggle through difficult times.


The knowledge that we will adapt with time and establish a new normal is the hope at the end of the tunnel it is being resilient.

Peace is in our hands

We live in a world that desires peace yet appears to have gone made with violence and war. Everywhere we look from the world leaders...
