I’ve been entertaining Albert Einstein’s statement about insanity recently, and have been forced to acknowledge that I need to change some things that I have been doing that are clearly not going to bring a different result.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
So having figured that out (see this blog post) my brain turned to the Theory of Relativity. I started poking around to try to figure out what Einstein posited, and why my space-time or time-space continuum seems to be always off. I am
not sure I do not understand the physics or the statement of the Theory of Relativity by Einstein. But this is what I was thinking about.
there is no “absolute” frame of reference. Every time you measure an object’s velocity, or its momentum, or how it experiences time, it’s always in relation to something else. Second, the speed of light is the same no matter who measures it or how fast the person measuring it is going. Third, nothing can go faster than light.

To which I can only respond “eep?!” Here’s a relatively understandable article.
What I was thinking about was this:
- Time: Early in the day there is infinite time, which seems to compress as the day passes. Example: Early in the day I seem to have infinite time (and anything is possible), which seems to compress as the day passes, but the compression does not allow me to get more things done, and in fact, seems to never be enough to do what seemed possible in the morning.
- Space: There is always more space in concept than there actually is, or if there is extra space, it is inconceivable how to use it. Example: Measure twice, check, and recheck, and yet I never seem to have space that actually matches what I need or want to store. I might have extra space in one closet, but a dearth of space in another, but it makes no sense to the overflow from one in the other.
- Stuff: It occupies far less space before it is acquired than it does after the acquisition. Example: It is like when we bought a TV that took up X amount of space in the store, and when it was wheeled out to the car, had grown exponentially because of the packaging and could not fit in the car. Placed on a piece of furniture (carefully measured for fit) at home, it consumes air space as if it was a hungry teenager.
We have these things which we cannot somehow fit into the time-space or space-time continuum we exist in. We continue to ignore these things as if they will somehow change, but that thing is too large to fit in our space, those projects will take more time to make than we estimate, and that those realities can be ignored, but reality will not change.
This is why I created Bust Your Stash with Jill Wolcott Knits®. You may join me for 10 months of sorting out your stash and creating space in your knitting life and storage area. I will be devoting a good portion my space-time to this program, so it is a subscription program. I am excited and know it will be worth our time.
