the good, the bad, the ugly
(pots by Gary Rith)
There are times I know Jesus is in my life (listen to my anarcho-punk self!), like when I eat some groovalicious pizza I made or my sweet wife is sweet to me or my beagle gives me those EYES or maybe my sweet kittie crawls into my lap and purrs, or when I am experimenting, which I do a lot of and which is sometimes not working and is depressing, and make a few things like these pots. I am totally wicked pleased with them. I am SO grateful for all that.
On the other hand, in the last week I have been very BAD. I stay up late every night reading, and have finished 6 and a half novels in the last 8 days, except Penny still gets me up at 5 and this morning I am WHIPPED and a little crabby (maybe even VERY CRABBY ) and I am still experimenting except I don't think my pots so far today are turning out very well, but you know, Jesus would say "carry on, see what happens with the clay, have a little more coffee, go cut the grass and make another pizza..."
