Today is the last day of the Peace Project Cowl. It’s not the last day for me since I still have (cough cough) several repeats to go but it is the last day The Healthy Knitter will be blogging tips and prompts about practicing peace. It’s also the day that we are all knitting in the name of peace from our own little corners of the world.
To say that thinking about peace has been inspirational for me would be an understatement. It’s something that has inspired me so much that, as I told you before, I have chosen peace as my One Little Word for 2017. I’m very excited about the ideas I have for keeping peace in my world and I’m looking forward to exploring lots of ways to expand and expound on peace.
Tonight will be the unofficial start of that for me because, while I’m knitting and thinking about peace, I will also be celebrating the solstice. As we have for the last several years, Dale and I will write down our regrets for the year 2016 and then burn those slips of paper in the wood stove. We will listen to a playlist that includes not only seasonal music but also Here Comes the Sun. We will state our intentions for 2017 and we will toast each other with glögg and say God Jul.
And we will wish for peace.
