Pray for me

Catholic girls pray for me.
You're my only hope for heaven- Tyler Childers
For those of us that loved John Prine well this young dude from Kentucky Tyler Childers just might be on the same path.
I have spent most days splitting wood. It's pretty daunting to look at 60 bundles of wood that all needs to be split and stacked log cabin style. What has made it bearable is listening to Tyler Childers.
Why do you think I'm splitting this dang wood? Do you think I've given up and spending the day on the couch watching Netflix, throwing up my hands and saying who gives a flying f#@k.
I miss The Cactus Lounge Flame Throwers. I miss a whole bunch of friends. I'm feeling especially distant from my NC friends whom embraced me like one of their own.
What I wouldn't do to go to Cagle's just down Pottery Road from Ben Owen's Pottery for a cheeseburger, some sweet potato fries, some ranch and a side of  hushpuppies. It's Tuesday night so it's buck off a draft at The Tap Room at Starworks. I want to be there for a Potter's Clay IPA and a bowl of popcorn.
I got a downstairs and a garage half full of bisque I want to wood fire. I can't assemble a crew. I am envious of Takuro and Hitomi who fired off their kiln with the help of their boys Ken and Tomo. What I wouldn't do to see some of my pots fired.
It will happen and that keeps me at the wood pile.
We will be back to normal however slow it's coming.
Be of courage my brothers and sisters.
Love, t
Maggie and me on stoking shift

A motley crew

Thanksgiving- Remember we have lots to be thankful for. You are awesome!

All that wood, and a chain saw, put the paintbrushes away, and go all out
on the manly art of chainsaw art.

Prayer for Artists
Bless the creators, O God of creation,
who by their gifts make the world
a more joyful and beautiful realm.
Through their labors
they teach us to see more clearly
the truth around us.
In their inspiration
they call forth wonder and awe
in our own living.
In their hope and vision
they remind us
that life is holy.
Bless all who create in your image,
O God of creation.
Pour your Spirit upon them
that their hearts may sing
and their works be fulfilling.

Creator of the Universe,
How infinite and astonishing
Are your worlds.
Thank you,
For your Sacred Art
And sustaining Presence.

Divine Imagination,
Forgive my blindness,
Open all my Eyes.
Reveal the Light of Truth.
Let original Beauty
Guide my every stroke.

Universal Creativity,
Flow through me,
From my heart
Through my mind to my hand,
Infuse my work with spirit
To feed hungry souls.
