I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Pacific Ocean Skull Cap


Today was a spiritual retreat day. Some of my friends and I decided to do a meditation.

These excercises by the ocean will be conducted by what it's called Ocean Beach, near the Golden Gate National Recreational Area Park. We had breakfast at Louie's. This restaurant has been family owned for almost 100 years. Afterwards we walked toward the ocean for some visualizations. Here, close to the ocean in this open space, before a cave that went through the rocks, we meditated for what seemed like an eternity.

The second part of the excercise will take us through this area toward the other side of that cave. This the tunnel simbolizes going within where you will explore your inner self. We took a very slow and conscientious walk toward the other side. You could hear the roar of the ocean waves as it pounded the walls of the cavern. Talking about seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.


You can see how tempestuous the ocean was. It was a very interesting sight. The ocean had such power and thrusted itself against the rocks with such fury. Yet it is our perception of what the ocean is doing as the ocean is not happy or angry, the ocean just is.


We finished with another meditation then we walked back completely relaxed and very happy, Don't I look satisfied and Happy? Why not, I am wearing one of my Pacific Ocean Skull Caps. Is that enough satisfaction? You bet!!!.
