The mystery of knitting ... remains a mystery

Knitters create holes with string using sticks and a clickety-clickety noise.

(image)



A golden host of my own

With spring bulbs, a minimum of effort is overwhelmingly repaid.

(image)



A freight train sings me an iron lullaby

The screech of the rails, the blast of the horn say all is well.

(image)



Gratitude in an age of automatons

If you think it’s tough to file a complaint today, try filing a compliment.

(image)



What we learned from our winter hike
