Forgetting

Gregory Patrick's picture

I've been working on these teddy bears, selling them on Etsy to be able to purchase the supplies necessary for living out here. FOOD. But, I've come to discover something else about working up these little bears that I had not realized until shortly before this blog. I think, with the solitude becoming more and more apparent, that the bears keep me company to some degree. As I work up each of their pieces their personalities come to life, their uniqueness becomes vibrant, and suddenly I remember the reason I was so compelled with this craft: the calming, seductive beauty of forgetting for a while. That's why I started knitting: to forget. And it has either been a curse (read "Mad Man Knitting," or a blessing.....like my little bears.
