Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
Ten years ago, I self-published a book of sock patterns that I’d designed for handknitters. I sold two printing runs but the binding was complicated so the book has been out of print for a number of years. I’ve received so many requests for the book that I’ve been adapting it to an e-book format that would be packaged and sold on CD.
Currently, I have the user interface formatted electronically, the packaging designed and the patterns laid out in PDF files and ready for proofing. This process has spanned so much time that I have received many emails asking when I’ll have this on the market.
It has come down to a matter of priorities — my day job eats up my time and energy. I love my day job and it keeps a roof over my head. Since my work is often deadline driven, my priorities are frequently defined by that which is most pressing. I know that there is a way to get this project finished and still complete my client work in a timly manner. I am determined to finish this e-book so I decided, if I mention it on my web log, I can be held accountable for its progress — make it pressing as well.
