Life right now is full of green things, rain and thunder, cool breezes and open windows, sun sometimes, lots of obligations, and equal amounts of joy and stress in doing all the things I do.
Between working with clay and planting things whenever I can, my fingernails are never clean. I like it that way.
Pots are getting made.
We are talking a lot about the self-sufficient and handmade life we would like to have. More on that later.
We’ve been baking our own bread for years now, and recently have learned to roast coffee. I think foods are more delicious and more nourishing the more you have to do with the process of making them. More on that later.
We walk together almost every day now that the weather is nice. Things blown off of trees come home with us a lot.
And as I said, pots are getting made. I’m really in love with a lot of the things I get to be part of creating (take this as a spiritual allusion, if you will, but it actually means that none can fathom the mysteries of a 2300 degree kiln).
