They asked me how I liked teaching.
I like it, it is not that I don't like it.
But, I miss my life as a potter.
I miss getting up and talking a morning walk, I miss the commute across the yard, I miss working with Mark on a daily bases, I miss the rhythm of the work place; the clay on the wheel, the fixing, the stamping, the creative edge, the zone. I miss it all.
This was my answer to them, " I was trying so hard to stay in my lane, not to look left or right, just move ahead, then one day I turned left in front of traffic."
You never know what you have until you try to hang on to it. Bit by bit by bit life can change.
It's what you do with it.
For me, I am teaching.
Some days it feels as if the band broke up.
Other days it all flows and new exciting challenges come up.
But, isn't that life?
Isn't life what you are doing while it is all happening around you.
We are still making pottery, Whynot Pottery still has a life, it is just at a slower pace.
