I feel so relieved at this moment! "Why?" you ask. Because I sent half of the projects for the book to the publisher today ... by overnight mail!
To celebrate, I'm showing you just a corner of one of the pieces for the book. It's amazing the discoveries you make when you have sustained time in the studio. My husband has totally taken over the job I once had in his psychology practice so that I can work freely on the book. He's an amazing guy! He has always wanted the best for me. He said to me one day, when I was a potter, "You know, just because I earn more than you do doesn't mean that what I do has more value and what you do has less. It's our society." And, I thought, you know he's right. If I were a potter living in Japan, where pottery is revered, it would be different. But, that feels like a lifetime ago in some respects.
So, folks, have a nice night. I know I will ... I'll be watching last night's episode of "The Closer!" A simple life of simple pleasures!
