a meditation

Three ways that sewing is like writing a dissertation:
1. at the start, you may not realize what you're getting yourself into
2. everything takes at least 50% longer than you imagine it will
3. you don't always recognize a mistake until after you've made it

Three ways sewing is not like writing a dissertation:
1. it is a form of self-expression that many people understand and identify with
2. aesthetic considerations are as important as practical ones
3. the process is sensory and tactile, and the results are tangible
