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

Since my husband had to be in the area last Friday, I suggested that we go to the KSU Gardens and Insect Zoo. The insect zoo was interesting and well worth the $2 admission fee.
We also stopped at Council Grove to see the Council Oak. It's a coincidence that I've been trying to finish Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee this month. Did you realize that when the Fifteenth Amendment was passed that Native Americans still couldn't vote? At least, that's what the book says.
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
