"I've got the key to my castle in the air, but whether I can unlock the door remains to be seen.”
from Louisa May Alcott's Little Women
We finally got the official keys to the our castle. And I finished up 12 pieces to go to an invitational next week. My attention was divided between building the passive solar house and creating work for this invitational. Things kept happening. Schedules not kept. Bits and pieces everywhere. Clay drying out. Glazes drying out. Ideas drying out. There is something about consistency. If I work daily, with consistency, just work, things happen, a small spark grows. For some time it was all I could do to throw some kindling on the embers. I kept hearing White Rabbit in the Disney film:
"I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date!
No time to say hello, goodbye!
I'm late! I'm late! I'm late!"
But it all settled down and things got done.
not late...just in time
And the embers still glow.
Now for a big piece of heartwood.......
