I'm working out at Mark Hewitt's this week helping to get ready for his spring kiln opening. Mark's place is so great and the people working with him are even better. You know, in the 90's I fought the good fight, worked hard, made pretty good money, had some good friends, and had more stress than anyone should ever have to have. I wore nice clothes, shopped all the time, traveled all the time, bought furniture, art, toys. It all ended badly, very long story. Now, I have on dirty clothes 80% of the time, I never shop, don't really want to buy anything but other people's pottery and some equipment now and then, and I'm incredibly happy. I get to go to work at places like this instead spending time in airports and convention centers. We have what we need and all is well. I'm very lucky!
Lara O'Keefe came by today, talking with Martin Simpson, Joseph Sand and Alex Matisse. Check out Alex's blog for more photos.
Joseph and Mark's gardens, really nice.
