where I am today








Just the sound of this calms me.  Getting clay ready in my grandmother's basement studio.  The slam- slam.  The smell of earth.

Wow - I must be feeling a little emotional. Not only is this just plain cool and made me miss ceramics class, it nearly made me cry as a parallel to life formed in my mind - thinking of the bad and good that come together, the opposition blending in the master's hands to create the perfect building material. The way it seems impossible at first to fuse the two, then the way it comes together with such fluidity as things progress, and the next moment there is no bad, but only the fusion -- which is better than even the good starting out. And thinking of the masterpeice that will result.

Mac -- you put into words exactly everything that was in my heart and why I've put this video up. I play it for myself when I come to my desk to write just for all those reasons.
