Me and Madame DeFarge

Madame DeFarge knitted her way through the French Revolution. At least her knitting had a political purpose. I, on the other hand, am spending this weekend selling my crocheted “accessories for heads and shoulders” at a craft fair. As I sit there in my booth under a tent in the rain, crocheting, I can’t help thinking that I should be doing something more political than crocheting. But what can I do? What can I do? Unlike Madame DeFarge, I’m not a player with a capital “P.” And this is not a revolution. Yet.
