Knitting grateful

I am cancelling my scheduled FO post today. I don’t watch TV, so the latest news came as a shock.

I wish all the people who suffered in these horrible attacks strength and peace.

Love, creativity and kindness are still here, in this world, though it’s hard to believe right now for those who have just witnessed the opposite.

I’ll be back on Wednesday with my knitting.

    I have been shutting the TV off so as not to hear about the sadness. I will instead focus on being creative and pray with every stitch. See you on Wednesday.

    So many people suffering … everywhere in the world. Makes my heart and head hurt.

      The only way to fight darkness is to let in the light… I think, creativity is a form of light, so I’ll keep close to my needles.

    Its hard to take in and comprehend. It makes my heart and head hurt too. I am torn between listening and shutting it all out.

      It’s definitely hard to find reasons for what is happening…

    Heartbreaking and so confusing. Why? That is the word that comes to me.

      The same word comes to me as well… I don’t think we will be able to answer it..

    The world is a crazy place… Knitting brings peace to it all.

      There are things in this world that just can’t be explained and understood…

    I feel as you do. I had just posted when I found out about Paris and spent the rest of the weekend feeling the distjuncture of replying to comments whilst these terrible things were occurring. Daily life becomes inexplicable in the face of such hate and random violence.

      I really loved your post, Rebecca! It was beautiful and moving. And I think it brought a lot of comfort to those who read it. It does feel weird to go on with your daily life after the world has been shaken to the core.
