I heard once that to get full benefit of things you need a vertical & horizontal connection. The vertical connection is within yourself. If you're bored silly with whatever, well that's not a good connection. The horizontal connection is between you & other peopel. If there's no connection, there's no connection. If either one is missing, you don't have the full benefit. I heard this initially regarding prayer and the vertical connection is between you & God. Since I don't consider knitting/spinning/etc as a religious/spiritual practice, that's not my 'vertical'
I hope I get/make both a vertical & horizontal connection tomorrow.
Have a great weekend!
