Friday knitting, and a little human rights blah blah. The sleeve as of two days ago...

I'm hoping with blocking,
this sweater will turn out looking like a Champ

The cable got a little wonkie, but I just don't care.  And from this point there should be no more mistakes on the sleeves anyway.

I have a cold that is settling in my chest so I'm knitting more and taking it easy.  Knitting and thinking go hand in hand, so to speak.

I've gone from fretting very much about what's going on in the world (and thinking that an alert and active citizenry can right centuries of wrong doing by governments) to knowing, without any doubt, that things will change only when those with the power and the wealth want it to.  The rest of us are playthings, not even worthy enough for any explanation of why they are doing what they do.

As Disraeli said, "Don't apologize, Don't explain."  Well, nearly a century later, basically that's what we have, still.  They don't apologize, nor do they explain.  And that old fellow, Machiavelli, said centuries ago said something akin to, "The reason there will be no change is because the people who stand to lose from change have all the power."

What I don't like is that human rights, and the Ecology we all need to have healthy just to survive, have been rolled into that "political" ping pong ball.

 I will always be an Uppity Woman.

    1. Women really need to keep the pressure on, look what it's done for the generations behind us. They are different women. Very brave and work in the underbelly of this big mess, changing things. I leave out the CIA because we all know how THEY are.
