The Non-Political Post

See that? That’s a sock. I ripped out the stockinette after I took the picture and it’s going to be ribbed all the way. Isn’t that sock nice and soothing and non-political? Its colorful cheerfulness provides a soothing haven from Huffpo and perky blond news anchors skipping around and interviewing people standing behind rope barriers. I’m jittery and also happy. 2008 was a terrible, choked year for me; ugly and lukewarm. I’m glad beyond description to see it go.

 Happiness can be smoothing a half-finished ribbed sock over your knee, and watching the old year fade into the distance with every stitch.
