Macro means large or long. So why do they call it the macro setting on my camera for close-up view? Anyways, I'm in love with it. I've started to become fascinated with the close-up world and all the little shapes and patterns you don't normally see. I am thankful...because this means I can enjoy my yard and garden without it being perfectly pleasing from far away. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Luke 12:7 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10
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
