This is my word for 2017.
We have slow food, slow fashion why note a slow year.
This doesn’t mean I am going to start moving in a sloth like pace.
Rather I want to take a step back from rushing to get things done
and actually enjoy doing them.
Appreciate the simple pleasure of making a cup of tea.
Take time to read a book.
Just sit and eat freshly picked raspberries.
Slow leads me to this.
A way of keeping in touch.
An email would work just fine but….
I wanted to have accountability for what I do.
My list of things I want to learn is long.
I have plans of gardening, knitting, sewing, weaving and so on.
I wanted to record and share what I do.
This is a slow way of doing that.
A photo taken which is planned and created.
A considered word written.
Most of my friends and family live some distance away from me, so when
the last lovely lass left to follow her husband with the wandering feet
I promised to keep in touch.
To ensure we didn’t loose touch I promise to write
every time I finished knitting something.
This is the promise.
Keeping in touch a funny format.
I hope you don’t mind
