where i stand sunday

To non-knitters it simply looks like a pile of yarn cluttering my footrest, a slow growing puddle of fabric that is in the way. But what they don't know is that it is really a reward. A decompression of stitches picked up after a long day of obligation, a few precious moments waiting to soothe my mind into relaxation. It rests in this spot so that I will reach for it when the need is there, a constant companion that helps to slow the world down.

Where I Stand is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places I spend my life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. The ground we tread on has its own stories to tell. (The project is now in Year Three. Year Three will feature artwork inspired by that week's Where I Stand photo as well as the photo that inspired it. Year One and Year Two can be found here.)
