A Knotted History

 

Friends just sent me this link to a page on knots that is well worth passing on! I love the opening:

“Knots are an ancient technology,” Jody Rosen writes in the New York Times. “They predate the axe and the wheel, quite possibly the use of fire, and maybe even man himself: Some scientists have speculated that the first knotters were animals, gorillas who tied simple ‘granny knots,’ interlacing branches to construct nests.”

Knots, in other words, are so ubiquitous that most of the time we fail to notice how important they are to being human.”

Knots are far more than important to your being human. The Love Knot is what makes your divine starstuff the unique human you are!
