gathering wool


Today I heard the term “wool gathering”. I had heard it before but it’s uncommon enough that it felt fresh when I heard it. It made me smile. The image of gathering up ideas and resources as we would wool. I can’t really relate to gathering wool per se but I do know what it feels like to wind a ball of yarn. I love doing it. Love the feel of the yarn through my fingers. Love the regularity of it. The rotation of the ball to keep it round. It’s a good activity to think with — to wool gather with.
