Nature Inspires Life Inspires Art No. 1

Earlier this year in April, I moved to Spain to attend the Escuela de Ceramica de la Moncloa located in Oeste Parque in Madrid. Two months ago on October 1st I put my hands back in clay. For the past ten years I’ve been living life, having taken a 10-year sabbatical from ceramics. Technically my work was good but it and I were missing something.

I couldn’t quite place my finger on it but now I know.

Now I know, who I am. Now I know, what I want. Now I know, my own soul.

I share my soul with you in three parts:

Fresh for day
Past tall aspen trees
Down windy mountain roads
Cold sunny wind shining on my face
I think of you

I hear your song
On wind rushing by
Calls of early morning birds
And the low rumble of the car engine
Navigating turns

A gathering of some of White River Junction’s notable characters commemorating the reconstruction of the train underpass on Bridge Street. Once a community where no one wanted to go to or live in, it is now a vibrant artists’ haven. This gathering is all artist: art teacher, visual artists, film-makers, costume-makers, lifestyle creators, clothing-designer, music-makers and more. The underpass serves as a main thorough way for pedestrians and vehicles to access downtown. It will be under construction through 2013.
