I don't know how you picture the calendar year in your head, but I bet you picture it. Mine starts in January, and in linear fashion progresses one month after the other to December in a line to the right, until I have to go all the way back to the left to start the new year in January. So I have a visual feeling of starting over too.
The most prominent thought I have this New Year is letting go. I want to go through everthing, closets, shelves, drawers, etc and pile up stuff I no longer need and bring it elsewhere out of my house. Same for my interior mind. Clean out those thoughts I no longer need. I really liked Jen
Mecca's blog and one of her hopes: her butt gets smaller. that one works for me too! Not that any of you can see my butt..
So the other day--Saturday? I was at the studio again after the bulk of the holidays had passed and it was soooo good to be there. I spent more time talking I think. But it was a good thing to do. Just being in the environment and community. Here are some of the potters at the wheel that day.
It is a great time to enjoy each other's company and lose yourself in the clay. Soon...detail of the letter pots, as I promised.
Happy New Year everyone.
