Within Our Reach

I was reading "Knitting in the Old Way" by Priscilla Gibson Roberts and Deborah Robson today and came across a quote they used that just seemed to fit yesterday's blog so well.
It's what I like to call 'serendipity-doodah'. (Anyone else old enough to remember that sparkling pink or bluish green gel used to make wondrously long-lasting curls in front of your ears with the use of bobby pins? But I digress.)
On to the quote:
"Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach." Clarissa Pinkola-Estes



P.S. I did a little research, and you can still buy Dippity Do. Guess I'm not that old after all!

Love that quote. Knitting is a kind of mending of the world, right? We almost always give the stuff we make away! Thanks for sharing.
