Treasures no longer buried

Joyful, 1965

UPS delivered three boxes from my sister yesterday. One of the boxes had some amazing photos I'd never seen before. The photo of me was taken in Torrance or perhaps San Bernardino, sometime in 1965. I was excited to find the photos of myself, but even more so to find dozens of photos of my mom and her family dated much earlier than most that I have. I loved this one:

A new (old) batch of photos arrives

and this one:

Little Akiko

And still more to come - some amazing stuff

Red lace :: a glimpse of knitting

A glimpse . . .

Here's photographic proof that I'm still knitting. I'm completely absorbed in this and another special project (or two) and will be back to share more about it all very soon. I've been nurturing some long-suppressed ambition and it's already been fruitful.

And I have a new header; now that I'm crocheting more, I figured it was time to honor that as well. Can you tell that I can't get enough red these days? I've got an "in-between" project to work on after I complete this lacy one -- and it's red too!

This quick blog entry is also a request for your feedback about my blog photos. Do you prefer the old method of smaller, "framed" photos or the newer one with larger photos that link to their corresponding Flickr pages? I have a preference - I'm just curious what my readers think.

Inspired by this and this, I made this:


Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some distant day into the answer. (Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet)
