I was just getting a post ready a few minutes ago when I realized that I nearly passed by a big milestone this morning without even noticing.
I've been poking at these keys for a year as of today!
Looking back, it's hard for me to believe that this just started on a whim. It was one more toy on the playground and I didn't "get it", I couldn't see why people would write diaries for everyone to rummage through. Part of this viewpoint stems from my lack of words, (or at least the words worth writing)... But I could definitely see the possibilities of using this media to share what's going on in the studio. After I got going, it turned out to be easy enough...somethings always going on in the studio. Hell, it even turns out that this is fun! It gives me something constructive to do at 3 am (it's only called insomnia if you don't have anything to do).
The really cool part was when I found out a few dozen ceramic artists were doing the same! Now it seems like there are well over a hundred mud monkeys pounding the keyboards! I love grabbing my morning coffee and pouring through everyone's sites,
I feel part of a much, much larger clay community and it feels GREAT!
So.... thank you everyone for popping by and humoring me this year. I'm looking forward to seeing what another year will bring,
Licks, Love, & Luck...
