My Primary Interest In Life

After pursuing many interests in my life, I have discovered that I have one, major primary interest in life. Deeply connected relationships with others.

Many times in the past 14 years, I have returned from one of the Men’s Knitting Retreats re-enlivened. This year’s retreat was no exception. Transformation has occurred again.

I’ll be posting a couple of other blog posts about this past week’s retreat. But without the context of what makes them amazing, they may not bring you the same joy as writing them brings me.

Current Knitting
