An Important companion
Tonight as she was holding it, she said to me, "this cup was an important companion to me this past year." Sigh........... could a potter hear words any sweeter to their ears?
She continued to say that she drank everything from that cup, water in the morning, hot tea, warming hot chocolate, comfort to her on those cold dark lonely nights in her dorm. She had some very lonely times, but she found comfort with this cup. I think that speaks volumes to those of you that make functional pottery. So here is to all of you that make beautiful work that brings a smile, a moment of joy or comfort, or laughter, or a memory long forgotten. Thank goodness artists are not easily defeated!
Taking my girl to the beach this week for some head clearing. She went with her dad to cover the Nascar race in Charlotte this past weekend, and I think her head is about to come undone from the shear intensity of this southern unexplainable sport..... Gerry has covered Nascar for almost thirty years now. Last night Wesley said, "I just don't see how he does what he does." I don't either, but he does it well.
Peace to those of you in Oklahoma, prayers for all
