U of M
On Easter Monday, Mom had her CT scan after drinking her two bottles of barium. Then we ate and walked around the U of M while awaiting the results. We visited the McNamara Alumni Center. Bob Dylan went there. Then we walked down Scholars' Walk.
My mom was feeling pretty strong. I did feel guilty at first since my sisters took care of her while she was weak and sick from the chemo and I felt my job was easy just driving her here. She lost at least 20 pounds since the last time I saw her. I kept thinking, "Now my mom really is a 'little old lady'!" She's 72, so she doesn't mind being called old.
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
