as an aside, when i look at these pictures i laugh so hard that i dribble. no joke.

feeling a little nostalgic for past lives and other versions. how things were and how things might have been if different choices were made.
not to say that i'm unhappy now, in fact i am feeling very blessed to have this version of my life. but it's such a human thing, isn't it, to wonder. or maybe it's a me thing. maybe not everyone does this!

with love

quiet start, with coffee
the smell of pavlova baking
planning my day

ethiopian lunch
a young woman singing jazz like a pro
and i'm missing Ants

making the most of a warm afternoon
planting tomatoes
documenting this broken town

coffee with greg
love the new C1
and the company.

reading back through the archives
laughing at myself
a little in awe of the old (young) me

my bed is calling
i'll perhaps watch a dvd,
it's an Antsless luxury

i bought myself a pottery wheel. it's a doer-upper, at this point it works but not very well. i haven't tried making anything on it yet!  i'm excited at the thought of being able to lose myself for hours in the garage with the whirring of the wheel for company, churning out mountains of bowls! that's what i want to make, functional bowls and cups and more bowls and maybe a plate or two, but mostly bowls. i wish i knew where i had safely stashed my oxide pencil! (the one i used on the monkey bowls, if you remember those)
what sort of bowls shall i make? i had this idea that i would give away pottery gifts for christmas, but i think that may be pushing it.. only 5 weeks away, and i haven't even got it ready to start! i joined a pottery club which is in a rural area about a half hour from home, they meet on mondays and i could possibly make it there for a couple of hours after work. there are 9 kilns out there!! electric, gas, woodfired, salt, raku, anagama... so much for me to learn if i choose to! i love the idea of eventually giving up my monday at work and making it my pottery day. i'm feeling creative again!
