The Long Slow Transition

I’ve been spending the past week and a half trying to dodge the glory. In this case I was trying to avoid killing myself laying flagstone out in the 109 degree heat. (I’m really getting to old for this kind of shit… it looks great but… ouch!) Unfortunately I’ve been using a bit of my down time during the midday heat to pick up a few books. This has meant time spent cruising the teen fiction isle of the library (they have air-conditioning) and swapping books with my 10 year old. Darn things are literary crack, boobtube for the literate mind. Now I’ll have to add summer reading to my list of personal vices.



Well in between the summer novels, flagstone, throwing, and firing of another load of bisque… I’ve been enjoying a slow slide into setting up the jewelry studio to create this year’s new silver works for FetishGhost Studio. I’ve been fairly timid about getting everything reestablished… last time the studio was fully up, I kind of went a bit nuts and tuned out the world for a good long time while I did my thing… After almost a decade of having the studio essentially folded up, I’m nearly bursting… there are just so many thoughts that have languished on the pages of my sketchbooks …. way too many new paths to be explored.

This could be very, very bad…

No such thing as to many directions to explore, only to little time to explore them all at once.

Boy that's an understatment!

i love the feeling of anticipating new directions and trying new things but it's always tempered by how short life is and you're right about this... getting too old for some of this shit. does this mean you will do metals and clay simultaneously or will you abscond to the jewelry world and take a hiatus from the clay world?

I'm think'n I'll just stop laying the flagstone and climbing trees for a buck... Like you said Jim, life is too short and I'm starting to feel it getting shorter every day, think I'll spend more time in the studio.

The silver! Ooooooh, the silver. Put down that "Twilight" series and get to work! :o) That bracelet is awesome.
