Keep on rocking in the free world
Okay, this guy is down in Old Town almost every Wednesday night jamming out by himself. He missed last week when it was 8 degrees or whatever. My pottery class is in one of the buildings along this courtyardish area. I've wanted to take a picture of him ever since I first saw him, but chickened out because I thought he might come talk to me or something. He was there when I came at 6:30 and was still jamming at 9. He was playing "Sweet Child of Mine" before and tonight was playing "Keep on Rocking in the Free World". Maybe I'll get enough courage up and take a better picture next week. We'll see.
By the way, in the background is the Warren Old Town theater where you can order food and drinks while you're watching a movie. I went to "Pirates of the Carribean II" this summer. Note to self: Don't order a salad next time you go. It's hard to eat it in the dark.
Visit Yosemite or, oh heck, visit every national park in the U.S.
A really good pot is in the details. --Doug Casebeer at the Ceramics Workshop in Jamaica '10
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
