 “Our life is composed greatly from dreams, from the unconscious, and they must be brought into connection with action. They must be woven together.”

 -Anais Nin

Watching the potter demonstrate her skill at the NC State Fair last Friday has had me thinking about how much I miss the feel of clay between my fingers .. pottery offers this raw connection to the earth that I have yet to find in another artsy endeavor. I will find a way to work this back into my life.

Speaking of things I missed...

Can I just say that I am so, so very happy to see y'all jumping in on the project Susan Tuttle & I dubbed 'Echo' ? It does my heart good, it feels wonderful to be connecting with y'all again. Besides, it is so fascinating to see how different people, view one theme, one prompt....how we all can end up somewhere different from the same starting point. I just can't get enough of it!  Hoping even more of you will share your views as well. If you haven't, read all about it here.

In the meantime, visit the wonderful folks sharing this journey with us as well:

I know some of you would like to work with someone as well on this project... why not reach out to someone who is already participating? It just may give you a chance to connect with someone too. Whatcha got to lose?

Please, keep your echoes coming! I receive so much pleasure from not only seeing them but sharing your work as well.  Remember, just link to your post in the comments to be included in the list above - I will update it frequently.

Next Wednesday, we will be sharing our next prompt.... see you there.

Warmly,

Chrysti
