A station break
This kiln load seems to be busting my chops.
I have been the, bull in the china shop.
Knocking over pots, two broken, splashing hot wax on the bisque while I am waxing, many pots put aside to fire off the wax from unwanted areas.
My feet hurt and I want to take a nap.
And yes I would like some cheese with that whine.
Maybe I am sleep walking.
It is the end of the summer and it is hot and humid. Has the heat settled in my brain and stopping me from functioning correctly?
I am glazing teapots, which is slow.
I am keeping my focus by thinking about Julia over at Henhouse Pottery, who would like to buy a teapot.
If I focus on someone while I am glazing and how I think they might enjoy having this pot it takes away the pain of the feet and that part of my brain that is plagued by self doubt.
The one which says, " go do something else for a living.... why do you continue to torture your self and others?"
Then I have to laugh at myself.
I whisper back to Mr. self doubt, " go away, go bother someone else, Can't you see I am busy."
