some people

some people walk in the rain
others just get wet
- roger miller

it's a bit ( ok, a lot ) rainy here at the moment . . .

working with clay is a battle with the elements
of weather most of the time
not to mention winter when it is cold and
your hands have to touch and be covered in
wet muddy clay for hours

but we persist, us potters,
because we love it
because it is our passion, our joy,
our work, our lively-hood

i walk in the rain of the process, even when frustration sets in,
and marvel at the fact that i work with the earth
( i sometimes forget that )
it is nice to be reminded of the elements . . .
and the whole circle of it all
