Fingers need to move
prompts them to keep busy
Just as my thoughts
will not be silent
My fingers will not be still
so I play Solitaire
or now type
I imagine myself crocheting
as I did long ago
as a young girl
Used to crochet
Used to paint, too
Maybe I will do so again
Do any or all of the above
I don’t put too much stock
in what I do
or don’t do
Ambivalent about goals
No longer as goal oriented
as I was long ago
Well, I do have some goals
but they are flexible
Time to get crochet hook and yarn…
I crochet a lot to keep my hands busy. I completely related to this poem! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you! I highly value your praise.
Kitt – I love this post. It’s personal and fun plus serious and throught provoking. You amaze me – Each time I visit your blog I find something new and better than what you had before. You have indeeed become a professional blogger with an individualized message. Way to go!!
I think it might be time to relearn how to knit or crochet. As a kid, I found crocheting easier.

I like the image and the wording! Cool!
Yeah… what is it about keeping our hands occupied? And what is it about these goals that are thwarted. I realise now that if I’m knitting, I’m knitting and that’s an end in itself. It doesn’t mean I have to finish it!
I love the image you used of fingers typing on the keyboard – you created that, didn’t you?
I want to print it out & frame it on the wall next to my laptop.
Moreover, I greatly appreciate the honest way in which you write – it’s so relatable and fresh.
