Do it on purpose.

January 4th, 2019 · 1 Comment · Daily

A few days back I grabbed my knitting and sat on the couch to watch Dumplin’. I went in knowing nothing, and I left feeling a little “Praise Be to Those Who Challenge.” One of my favorite parts of the movie was a simple quote by Dolly Parton: “Find out who you are and do it on purpose.” Right now I am an unenthused retainer-wearing lady with a weird eczema thing happening on her neck. Go get ’em.

I’m also “Cowl Knitter with Amazing Project Bag”. (Don’t get me started on the quotation mark that pulled ahead of the period. It knows exactly what it’s doing.)



Look closely.


(Sonia Harris is an amazing artist. Follow this link to understand why she does what she does. Beautifully.)

I’m “Nervous Dog Mom Who Is Looking Forward to Following Along”. (Both dog and mom are nervous, so that modifier isn’t misplaced. It’s pulling a double shift.)



We have so much to look forward to. So much of which to look forward. So much. Look forward.

    I’ve been reading you for years and years, and today I just wanted to drop in and say how much I appreciate how your brain works (I am full of envy there) and how well you translate that into the written word. It’s such a talent, and it’s such a gift that readers get to experience it. THANK YOU for you doing what you do!
