Updating can be so tedious and time consuming!
I know, life can be soooo STRESSFUL at times! That's why we each need to learn to settle down, and find our "center" with a bit of meditation and deep quiet thoughts. Unlike my disturbed friend here (shown above) he was quickly off-center and because of that, he is stressed-out to this day! One must find inner peace, but first you must make that self-discovery! It seems like ages ago sometimes, but after about a 25 year break, I once again found myself in the position, due in part to the economy, of picking-up some clay and working once again on a wheel. Probably something I have should have NEVER stopped doing. I believe that working with clay can be very meditative and relaxing. As you center the clay on the wheel, you seek center or "balance" within yourself. It is a therapy and lesson in life! Then as you coax and guide the clay on the wheel, you find yourself giving it form and shape until (after some practice this becomes easier) the clay matures much like a growing child.
