If I can combine good food, art, laughter and good friends all in one day, it's a good day. Today was one of those days. Trust me if there is fun to be had, I am going to have it! Susan Wells and I took our kids to the art museum in Raleigh today, which by the way, is a bit depleted right now due to their huge expansion project. Still some great art to see and going at 10:30 on a Sunday morning is like being in the church of art. Very peaceful and serene. We stopped at a local taqueria on the way home and had what I think are the best tamales I have every eaten in my life. Maybe one of the best meals I have ever had! The tamales were so fresh and wrapped in banana leaves with a hint of a smoky flavor. Unreal!
For some odd reason it had a cow on the top of the building and also for some odd reason the kids wanted to pop the top on the van. So we looked like we were camping out at the taco stand. Looked like a bunch of fools I'm sure to the local Hispanic residents!
So this little guy is stirring some big inspiration somewhere in my soul. Read below about him. The rest of the photos also give me some great inspiration and I think the fog may be lifting!
Cool patterns for stamps. These were coins, how come our coins are so plain? I want some of these in my pockets!
Kid's camp totem making pinch pots and animal sculptures. I can't wait to do this!
Raku boxes, maybe......
time to rock and roll.......
