-Arlo Guthrie performed Amazing Grace on the opening night of Woodstock. -The Music Educator's National Conference included Amazing Grace in their list of 42 songs that preserve a piece of American culture. -There are currently 972 arrangements of the song and more than 1,100 available albums which feature versions of Amazing Grace. -A survey of British teenagers in the mid-1970s found that the majority thought that Amazing Grace was a love song about a girl named Grace. -Amazing Grace is considered to be the anthem of the Cherokee Nation because the song was sung on the Trail of Tears during 1838-39.

There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
