Well, wow, look at the views! I've been helping out with matching up Mentors with Mentees for the past 6-7 months. Mostly it's been a good gig. Sometimes I get a bit of flack on a sort of snippy level: it's about time you got in touch type of deal. Well, way hey, I'm a jobbing potter. Volunteering time. Board member: we take on a job within Potters Council. Back off with the attitude, please, thank you very much. I know that if you're in a place where you're having trouble accessing internet, and you're struggling to get online time is slow and you're -- frankly -- irritated.


Sign up to become a Mentor. If you're chipping away daily on Clayart@LSV.ceramics.org -- for example -- I'm eager to see you place your time and talent towards becoming a Mentor. It's totally obvious to thousands of readers that you've got time.
