Well, I haven’t been here in a while.  Hello again.

A few big things have happened. (Or maybe only one; I’ve lost track.)  About the time I last wrote here, we were beginning the tenderest journey.We welcomed our son in early March of this year, and it’s been a blur.  Things are pretty crazy and joyful around here.  Not much sleep was happening for a while there.  Not much pottery has gotten made.  (None, in fact.)  This is a baby who loves to be held and does not love not being held; we can barely do the dishes, let alone create dishes.  But we wouldn’t want him to be any different.


Today I’m getting my hands in clay for the first time in many months.  I have missed it at times, but there has been something more wonderful at hand, eclipsing all other things, and I’m grateful I can take some time off to tend what needs tending.

I’m not sorry.

  1. I look forward to reading your blog. Nice thing is, you will never look back and say, “I wish I hadn’t held him so much.” I promise!! Cindi

  2. We’re not sorry, either, dear Rachel. And you’ll be amazed–now that you’ve done this BIG THING–how much more creative you’re gonna be. Rewards, blessings, raining down on you!

  3. As always, Rachel, I love what you co-create with God! I was so deeply blessed to see and experience the way that your love with Matthew deepened your creative well. I know this is doing that again for both of you, in a whole new way. This was a beautifully rich way of expressing the reason for your absence, and opening up the path to jump back in. Thank you for sharing with us.
