Grandson Michael plays Man #3 is his schools musical production. Annie. Laura and I got to see him on stage Friday night. We had a great time. For $1 you could get a flower and write a congratulatory gram attached with a ribbon.

The vase holding the flowers was a wedding gift from my friend Vincie, Erika reminded me.

My Brooklyn Boy Knits Pin Arrived in the Mail Today

I’m a fan,

A year or so ago,  my daughter Laura sent me a video on Facebook.  She saw knitting and thought of me.  It was a video of Louis Boria knitting on the subway.  He is known as Brooklyn Boy Knits.   He breaks the stereotype of knitters as grandmothers in rocking chairs.  His photo and video went viral. Supporters and encouragers have multiplied from all parts of the globe. People are cheering him on as he is recognized for much more than just his knitting. His charity and community work is inspiring and he works hard to bring knitting, as part of the curriculum, to city schools. He was on stage in January at Vogue Knitting Live 2019 in NYC.   Check him out on Instagram @brooklynboyknits.

And now you know, in case you didn’t before- Men Knit!  Go Louis!

Brooklyn Boy Knits    Is Louis Boria- Here is what he says

” Sometimes your passion creates a purpose and the rest is history.”

“In November 2017, singer/Broadway actress Frenchie Davis snapped a photo of me while knitting on a NYC Subway train. She then posted that photo on social media, and since then, my life has changed. You never know who’s watching! Thank you Frenchie and all those who have showed me love and support throughout the world. Here’s a glimpse into my journey.”

A Teacher Plants Too Many Seeds to Count

Q: How many seeds does a teacher plant in a lifetime?

A: Too many to count.

That lone seed looks like it is floating to me!

There are lots of teacher gifts with apples and seeds and sweet sayings but I was thinking about how often a teacher sees the fruit of one’s labors from the years of teaching in the classroom.
