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.
