Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?
In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights
In cups of coffeeIn inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.

In five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutesHow do you measure
A year in the life?

(Extract from the song Seasons of Love, from Rent)

As knitters and spinner perhaps we measure a year differently:

In stiches, in bobbins
In skeins of handspun,
In friendship and laugher and fun.

Today is my blog is one year old. This got me thinking about everything that has happened in the last year, since I started writing here, and feeling rather sentimental. Thanks for playing along with me on the blog and in real life.
