Have you ever been so involved in a hobby that the day just zips by? Before you know it the whole day is gone. Those are my Zen moments. The ones I loved and didn’t realize I had until today.
I knit as a hobby, hats, socks, sweaters. I learned as a young teen from a nice lady across the street. I made a few things but never really picked it back up until a few years ago. (remember I’m over fifty now) I guess the appreciation of the craft didn’t hit me until I ran out of yarn. I noticed, silly me, that I was getting excited waiting for the mail person to deliver my soft, silky and slightly wooly hanks of yarn. Itching to get those needles back in my hands. Knitting produces those moments when your fingers are busy but the mind is clear. Tensions of life are minimal, I am at peace. I am at one with my yarn. That is what I call Zen.
What are your Zen moments? I would love to know.
