Apologies for raving on about this… I’ve already posted over at OutdoorKnit about our outing. But anywayyyy… something that happened there made me wanna post about Valentine’s Day.
It really suprised me that there were a few people that walked past and muttered “Fricking Valentine’s Day” while we were out there getting our weave on. Don’t get me wrong, there were a zillion people who walked past and were all “Awesome!” but a couple of people who couldn’t see the intent behind the work. It isn’t about the declaration of love for one person, excluding all those who don’t happen to be romantically involved specifically on February 14th. It was about creating something around the theme of love that eeeeeveryone could enjoy. And that expressions of love don’t have to be through how much money you can spend.
I don’t know… but the boy seemed to get it. I woke up yesterday morning and he presented me with a mini version of a heart fence. He’d woven three hearts into a grill of some description and confessed that he’d been up til 5.30am on Saturday morning crafting the damn thing. haha Awesome. I can’t help smiling every time I think about it… which is totally what the fence thing is alllll about.
