Although we might each
only experience
a handful of

truly classic days,
they are never forgotten.
One such day was this one

last Friday
at the old railroad track
along the Yolo Causeway.

The Art of Clay

La clase que ha sido mas terapia que estudio
para Sarita es esta.
El horno recien vaciado; letrero en la entrada.

The class for Sara that's been
more therapy than study has been this one.
Recently emptied kiln; sign hung at the entrance.

Los hombres son como vasijas de barro,
que no valen sino por lo que guardan
El profesor, Rodney Mott -

Raku kiln
"My professor lets us do the whole Raku process, which is one of the reasons I like it so much. I did a blog post the other day about it at I havent fired much Raku, as the year is ending now, but our kitchen is full of my bowls..." -Sara

El Gozo

There comes a certain joy when you realized you're still afloat after a storm. You feel more seasoned and ready for other difficult moments that may come your way. You have a greater appreciation for obedience through faith, and can see God's hand of providence through it all.
