Knitting Inmates

I find this lady really amazing. She just decided one day to try to improve inmates lives through knitting. And then she did it.

There’s something to that, just choosing a path and walking down it no matter how unexpected and how unlikely. I think writing is the same, or any other creative endeavor. We do it for the love, the passion, and we keep doing it even when we’re rejected or turned away. In the end, this lady is making real magic with people who badly need it.

(Not only that. The inmates are making things to comfort child victims of domestic violence. I cant think of anything more beautiful, or meaningful. What an amazing story.)
