Crochet: It looks like very little but it's actually my 12th attempt at this. The original pattern was crazy small so I've been adjusting, fitting, ripping out, and refitting. At least I have something now that looks to fit a human head.
Knitting: Conversely I've gotten a fair amount done on the socks since they're something I can work on in the movies and at red lights. There's Monster's University and Planes here, as well as a friend's birthday dinner.
Lolita by Vladamir Nabokov. It's a hard story to read. If you ignore the main subject you're left with a pompous twit who is convinced all the ladies are falling at his feet. Even the dear Lolita is among those driven to desire him by his looks. I'm glad the end looks to be coming up fairly quickly.
I dance in the shadows, Afraid of falling in front of many. I sing in the shadows, Afraid of being heard by any. I live in the shadows, Afraid of what the light may show. Here I exit the shadows, Afraid of no foe. -Me.
We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us. -Joseph Campbell
The liar's punishment is not that he is not believed, but that he cannot believe any one else. -George Bernard Shaw
By laughing you do not use up your laughter, but increase your store of it. The more you love, the more you will be loved. The more you give, the more you will receive. -Dean Koontz in Life Expectancy
