Beautiful bit about breastfeeding. I fed all three of mine till they were almost three. Such a special connection.

What a joy! This last week i have been to several gigs, all of which were very different styles of music, funk, punk, indie, folk, middle of the road... I went alone to some of them... and you have a choice in that moment to connect with another human or just stay in your own world... i did both. It takes courage to connect with another human being in those moments... but human connection is vital even just to catch someone's eye never mind the odd chit chat and appreciation of the moment.

I’m glad you feel happy to go to the gigs alone! I feel like lots of people miss out on a lot of joy because they feel that they need people with them at all times. Well done!

I exist outside capitalism when I knit: creating something unique, tactile and colourful. Granted it is the product of manufacture (yarn, needles, paper, pen and computing) but I have created something unique and given the pattern to the world for others to have the joy of creating their own version. My legacy is to show others the joy of creating with their hands.
