Pretend art and other things celebrating my weirdness, I mean uniqueness

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. Matthew 6:34
I have things on my mind that I would like to blog about, but will have to get to them later. I've been trying to relearn, remember, digest enjoying the here and now and not "waiting for things to be over" or worrying about what might happen in the future.
I'm forcing myself to look up some verses in The Message Version of the Bible. I think one of the reasons I like the NKJV is because I can distance myself from it more. I used to use the excuse of it being the most untranslated form that is most like the original version that I can grasp.
...It seems like "Do not worry about tomorrow" is much easier than "Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now".

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
