Turn, Turn, Turn
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1
To everything, turn, turn, turn...
When my kids were about 6, 7, and 9 I took over our church's Childrens Choir. I had a great resource for music which included a version of the music tracks for the Byrds song, "Turn, turn, turn." I had about 25 kids in the choir, ages 5 to about 15, and actually ended up being able to teach them all parts and harmonies - and they all got up makeshift bleachers one morning and performed as part of the service. Swaying and singing, turn, turn turn.
It is truly one of my favorite memories.
It was great, it was uplifting, it was challenging, it was "real," and I think touched the hearts of everyone who was present that day. When I hear that song now, I still think of those kids, and how hard they worked.
So, here's the segue.... wait for it..... Turn, turn, turn..... I LOVE turning heels. It's my favorite part of knitting a sock. Heel flapping, not so much... for as simple as that is, I ALWAYS mess it up, somehow.... but I love the magic of turning the heel. Love it, love it.
I turned the heel on my second Jaywalker last night, now I'm on the home stretch with pair #6.

Turn, turn turn....
"a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace." Ecclesiastes 3:2-8 (NIV)
