This is my father’s eldest sister (91) knitting. Every time I visit her she seems to be knitting the same piece of yarn… I sometimes wonder if she is like Penelope, and undoes her knitting every night waiting for her Ulises…

to be the candle

or the mirror that reflects it.”

“I like dogs
Big dogs
Little dogs
Fat dogs
Doggy dogs
Old dogs
Puppy dogs
I like dogs
A dog that is barking over the hill
A dog that is dreaming very still
A dog that is running wherever he will
I like dogs.” 


Margaret Wise Brown, The Friendly Book
