A Very Mylo Christmas
Thanks, Cheggie (Jackie)!!! It arrived today, ach yah! My favorite song is Winter in North Dakota to the tune of Living la Vida Loca!
Snow is on the way – WINTER IN NORTH DAKOTA It won’t melt ‘til May – WINTER IN NORTH DAKOTA Please don’t get me wrong: there’s no place I’d rather go ta, But winter’s eight months long, livin’ in North Dakota. (come on!) My engine won’t turn over, when it’s WINTER IN NORTH DAKOTA. (bus oof!*)
p.s. For those of you who didn't grow up in N.D., Mylo is the "Weird Al" of North Dakota farmers and you probably wouldn't get the humor but for us it's fun, fun, fun. You Betcha!
p.p.s. Thanks to Cara and Calana, I've been listening to Trans-Siberian Orchestra and also Behold the Lamb of God by Andrew Peterson thanks to Jarrett and Kristi who sang a duet in church. Check out the "Labor of Love" song here if you haven't already.
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
