Energy is one of my favourite words. I like people with energy. I like towns with energy! I like a town with bookstores, cafes, bars, music and good sports stores. Over a decade ago I taught a course in Tuscany, Italy with a group of students that their combined energy added up to dynamite. They still all meet and travel together although they live in places all over North America. One of those students invited me to do a workshop in Michigan. On our day off we went for a drive to a nice little tourist town in Grand Haven, Michigan. I saw energy with coffee shops, nice restaurants, clothing stores and a lovely beach. I told Cyndi she should open a gallery there and she did! Be careful what you say to a woman with energy. Cyndi has been brilliant as a gallery owner. It is my pleasure to be joining Cyndi on Wednesday March 17th at 12:15 to talk pots and philosophy of making and living in the world of clay. Here is the link https://youtube.com/channel/UCyhuR97buEnyL-RFFrO530Q It's free and I'm totally excited to be grilled by a friend and person of high energy. I made some pots this week that have the most energy I've been able to muster for a couple of months. The sun is shining and good weather is on it's way. I did a bike ride today 26K with a former Ontario Provincial Woman's Champion. If you want to play better pool play with someone better than you. Energy is contagious!!! I'm sending out all the positive energy I can muster to y'all my brothers and sisters of clay. Give it all ya got!
