In Topic: Qotw: Do You Have A Plan B?

03 October 2015 - 10:32 AM

thank you all so much for your stories and for the serious and not so serious ideas for a plan B. I see that a lot of you are struggling with health problems, also, or mainly, in the "tool" we potters need the most: our hands, arms and shoulders. And, nevertheless, you all stay with clay, work slower when the pain gets the upper hand and catching up when pain recedes for a while. I think you all (and I too) deserve a  BIG APPLAUSE!


Have a happy and wonderful weekend!

John, this would be interesting also for people outside your area or even outside the US. Have you ever thought about doing an e-course about the subject?

Tom: I think a hip surgery is much more dangerous than a carpal tunnel, and I am happy for you that everything went well (and that you don't have to vacuum anymore ;) ). About plan B: what would it be you would do if you really couldn't to ceramics anymore? Do you have another education?


Mark: cut and thrown out bones? Without replacement or some other alternative? Sounds crass. I would have the same problem as you, needing the wrist for other professions. I used to be a piano teacher, but that would be no plan B anymore with a damaged hand...


Still having a more or less functional body, I fear we take too much for granted...

I bet potters are not as goofy as the the other reality show contestants.


I hope that they don't do the same garbage that the US type so-called "reality shows" do.  They select people to participate that DO have issues and are goofy and unstable and such on purpose.  They deliberately set up conflicts that they can see coming as they select the mix of people / personalities, and then put together scenarios that they KNOW will somehow "backfire" given the mix of people they put together......... and therefore make what they think will be "good TV".







That's so sick! Glad I don't have TV. (There's a button called: OFF on every TV I think ;) )
