    Rae Reich reacted to preeta in Hey! Welcome back, Preeta! I missed your contributions. What are you up to now?   
    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.

The clay is backed up to shed and taken off truck with about 6 feet of max movement-stacked 9 boxes high.
