It's been a while since I plugged in here. A lot going on, but the biggest news of my new year (so far) is that I am 7 days smoke free. I know, that's got nothing to do with pottery, but hey, it's my blog and right now, that's about all I can focus on, not smoking. I did it at Kripalu, a very cool retreat center near here... 20 other people did this with me and although I have quit many times, this time I have a bunch of new friends supporting eachother doing this most life affirming thing. By the way, quitting smoking really sucks. Will someone please remind of that so I never have to do this again?

I will have new pottery soon to post, but first, I think I'll take a deep breath...
