Life changes

The Sewing Bird is closing, so I must re-think how I will spend my retirement. Laughter is important. Knitting is also important. The friends I have made, students or staff, must be kept and I am so bad about that. What to do.

I no longer want to be the next Sally Melville or Valentina Devine. I do want to be able to spend time with designers and master knitters. Lord, I hope there isn't substitute teaching in my future.

If I can continue to learn and make things, I will be a happy woman.

Will we start a new business? Retreats? Creativity workshops? Whatever.

Age has taught me to like women, to enjoy their friendship. Most of my life I've been happier talking to guys. No longer. Interesting. Is it the lack of competition of the crone years? Well, it's a nice place to be.
