All my life's a circle sunrise and sundown. Home after 2 months in The Deep South at Brian Nettles Pottery in Pass Christian, Mississippi- Swampcroft. I'm home at Pinecroft where the mud path all started. The ghosts of my Uncle Jimmie and Aunt Cavvy rest on my shoulders almost everywhere I go.
Tomorrow the restaurant "The Green Frog Tearoom" opens to a predicted snow storm. I'm going anyways even if I have to ride my fat bike in the snow. It's called "showing up!"
I can't thank Brian and Rhonda Nettles enough for their Southern hospitality and yes a few belly laughs. I felt welcome, appreciated and loved. It's always nice to get home to familiarity, your own bed and the creature comforts of your rabbits warren.
I'm going to take a few days off before heading to the studio on Monday.
This is the commute from the restaurant to the studio. Life is a grind.
These past months were amazing. What was so amazing for me was a chapter in my life called "Authenticity". Be who you say you are. Life is not a photo op. It is hard work. I love the work!!!
