Purpose

As I have matured, grown older and, hopefully, learned a few things; I have discovered my spirituality shifting. In writing this blog, I hope to explore how the spiritual and the so-called non-spiritual are determined only by our perception of them.

I find deep meaning in the work of my hands, whether that be creating something new or cleaning something old. (excepting toilets. I haven't found meaning in cleaning those yet.) My work for money includes a lot of use of my intellect and can be challenging. But, I am finding that those things that I can hold in my hands feel like more of an accomplishment or, perhaps, more real.

So, I will be reflecting on what might be the mundane aspects of life and how they may offer the deep spiritual underpinnings that many folks look for. I'll also be musing on quotes from others that seem true to me. I'll probably also be posting images of completed projects once I get up to speed on this blogging thing.

I know exactly what you mean, Nan. There's eomething about creating order from chaos, isn't there? Like creating a comforting baby wrap, shawl, or mittens out of a ball of yarn? Shaping those twists into a length of lace, or soft socks? Looking forward to hearing more! (Lorien)
