This last Sunday I went to the shop “A Verb For Keeping Warm” in Oakland to listen to Brenda Dayne talk about memory, and knitting. I brought my memory pouch and story to give to Brenda, which she will use in her art project.
It was so nice to meet Brenda! I’ve been listening to her podcast for years. It’s a funny thing to put a face with a voice that I know so well. I said to her that it must be very weird for her to meet all these people who are strangers but who feel like they know her so well! She said that Tanya said its like she has hundreds of therapists all over the world. Brenda said it is weird that she can say ‘Zack called’ and we know who she’s talking about.
I’m not going to try to repeat her talk/essay. I wouldn’t do it justice. I will only say that she brought the science of memory together with the craft of knitting so that we were all interested and it all made perfect sense.
Keep at it Brenda. You have dedicated fans all over the world. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished memory project!
