Midlife is the old age of youth and the youth of old age. Proverb
There’s a time and place for everything and almost none of them are for knitting.
On a cold evening, in your own home with no one else around – that’s pretty much the only time knitting is appropriate. And I don’t mean ha funny. It’s hard to be cool and smooth when you’re holding a ball of yarn and a half finished scarf, with your hands in front of you like a squirrel.
No matter what you’re wearing, regardless of how much you spent on your haircut, you’re going to take on Mousy Spinster characteristics if you as much as hold the knitting needles in your hand.
Did you know that the Chinese character meaning “crisis” consists of two words, one signifying danger and the other opportunity?
Like so many other things in life, handling the crisis will depend a great deal on one’s attitude. The glass is either half full or half empty. (I also remember an old story about a child thrown into a pen with manure.
He turned hopefully to his father and said, (“There must be a pony in here somewhere.”) The glass should be half full, but for some of us it will never be. I know that I have found my pony, but on some days I just see the manure before me.
Men and women usually experience the crisis in their late forties to late fifties.
Most men don’t like to talk about their crisis, unlike women who are generally forced to deal with the issue of menopause because of definite physical symptoms. A wide range of feelings among men typically includes increased irritability, boredom, anxiety, depression, insomnia, memory lapses and mood swings.
So after much thought ( around 5 Mins), I am getting the knitting back out!
It is not spring yet so ladies and gents, enjoy the moment because around sometime in March we will be dealing with a new crisis. …Just rambling today .
