Sense of Community
Been thinking lately about the line in the movie The English Patient where the "English patient" asks, "How come people get excited when they meet someone from their hometown when if they would've passed them on the street at home and wouldn't have given them the time of day?" --or something like that.
Think that's why I'm annoyed at all the big radio stations buying up the little ones. Is that why people are annoyed at all the Wal-Marts popping up and eating the "little guys" up. Isn't that why some people need to watch the local news?
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
