The soul has greater need of the ideal than the real for it is by the real that we exist, it is by the ideal that we live

Why so serious?

I'm not feeling particularly engaged right now.  Sort fo coasting through things and not really feeling much applies to me or my situation. Odd.

I need to make some changes, and I need to realize that when I work in the studio I feel not only empowered, but that I'm doing work that matters to me and work that makes me feel like I'm accomplishing somehting I can be proud of.

Giving someone a free quiche because the last one had eggshells in it doesn't put a lot of wind in my sails.

Doing an installation in a shop here today of my pottery and I can't wait to see the results.  The wares I have to display right now aren't my best work, but it's passable and it seems the muse has returned because I spent a lot of time in the studio recently and it was very gratifying, so when that stuff is ready I'll be able to replace this stuff with more better stuff.

Thinking I need to start working on a way to make the car disappear at the end of this academic year.  by disappear I mean be owned by someone else.  It's just an expense I don't need right now and it's impeding my ability to make necessary adjustments to my life.

The miners are coming to the surface in Chile, Yeah!   The teabaggers are going indiscriminately crazy, Yeah! The weekend is closer, Yeah!

And so it goes:
