The Autumn of Unravel-Time to Rewind!

Just when you think you can take a day off from this planet gone mad and watch a playoff game, or get outside to plant some fall pansies, the madness and sadness deepens beyond where you thought it could go just yesterday.  It is difficult, even if you are not a news junkie like I am, to avoid the tornado of insanity that has become this world.  We are spiraling and unraveling as a civilization in decorum and humanity.  We don't like one another, and what's more frightening we don't care about one another.  Unacceptable!  Social media, pop culture, and a 24/7 appetite for anything to talk about has unleashed and bred the ugly, the unseemly, the horrific,and the darkest side of human nature.  Intolerance is intolerable. Period!  We need a STOP sign on a culture that has allowed itself to excuse, accept and even dismiss as "the norm" behavior that demeans, insults, harms and devalues ANY human being.   What to do???   Wish I had an easy answer. But to start I'm choosing to Turn off, Tune out. Click off...  A ball of yarn and 2 sticks are the only technology that makes sense right now!   When the world goes mad perhaps we just need to KNIT it back together-one loving and lovely stitch at a time.

Vidje from Woolfolk

"One of the most disturbing things about this election is just the unbelievable rhetoric coming from the top of the Republican ticket,... I don't need to repeat it. There are children in the room.But, demeaning women, degrading women, but also minorities, immigrants, people of other faiths. Mocking the disabled. Insulting our troops. Insulting our veterans. That tells you a couple of things, ...In addition to revealing an insecurity, it tells you that he doesn't care much about the basic values that we try to impart to our kids. It tells you he'd be careless with the civility and the respect that a real, vibrant democracy requires..."President Barack Obama
