      Awww thank you guys. Just have had a lot going on. Mainly my teenage daughter's medical issues. Just trying to find answers which we are close to finally after suffering for 5 years.  

      Taking a principals of cooking class (3 hours straight standing and cooking. I loved every minute of it but it was only on the way back home the exhaustion would hit me) , starting a garden at a community plot plus working more. 

      I've taken all the community college classes in clay so now I volunteer to keep using the lab. So I have had no free time.  Plus i really got into researching the political world. I had to leave that now because it got too depressing (But thanks to Vaclav Havel i havent lost hope) and so I'm back here.  

      Clay is my first love and you guys are a great bunch to hang out with. I've missed the clay talk. So I've come home.  

      I love this sense of community. I found that in culinary and gardening as well as clay. 

      Eeh one day I'll have the guts to post pictures of my work.  I've got the form to where I like it but now am working on the skin I'd like to complete my work. I love our gas kiln. I've also finally accepted who I am as a potter. Which influence I want to show more. My political research helped me with that. I was grateful to find my voice of protest through my pottery. Now finally as a potter I am at peace.

      Wow! What a lot of new input for your clay work - will we see "message" veggie steamers? Serving dishes for Peace? With all the talk about "kitchen table issues," the table surely is where community begins.

      Love and best wishes to you and your family

  3. You broke your arm?  Just lately? So sorry to hear that. Right or left? Hope your recovery time is minimal, don't go bananas over inactivity. Best wishes - Rae

      last Saturday while pressing 91 gallons of apple juice with 25 friends at our place-i was in one of my trees on an orchard ladder when the limb I was extended out on broke. we both went down about 7 feet-i landed on my back a little more on my left side. fractured my head of the left arm radius bone-very clean and should heal fast. I'm out out sling now -hand is still very swollen I'm using ice and as they suggest starting to use the whole hand and arm-pain is my guide they said.its my left forearm 

      no heavy work at all for 3-4 weeks-i can carry a letter with left hand but cannot tear paper off a roll yet-gradual stregthing needs to happen .

      Ouch! Falling out of an apple tree is how George Bernard Shaw met his end at close to 100 yrs. You were lucky. I never broke a bone until I fell on my right wrist 1 1/2 yrs ago. Afraid I started PT a little late as there is definitely some pain with some kinds of pressure/use and my hand is now shaped a little funny. I was pleased to discover that I can wield a hammer better with my left hand than my right, I never would have known.

      No doubt you'll heal quickly, as your lifestyle keeps you active and strong. 

      Best, Rae
