This is what I will be doing this weekend.
Anagama Firing with Anne Rafferty
Firing October 29- 31, Unloading November 6
Everyone is invited to join in the firing of our wonderful anagama kiln. Bring cone 10 bisque pots, and glaze with our glazes, or bring your own cone 10 glazes to share. Loading begins early on Friday morning, stoking begins late Friday night and continues until Sunday morning. Participants will sign up for four hour shifts to stoke the kiln. The kiln will be unloaded the following Saturday, November 6. Bring protective clothing (long sleeves, no synthetic fibers- they are flammable) and work gloves. Trucks and chainsaws are always needed, too!
The firing fee is one cent per cubic inch. Participants are welcome to camp on the lawn. Food is potluck style- bring something you can share. Everyone is expected to pitch in! Please RSVP to hold your place in the firing.

After six years at CNN, I am now out. I can now direct my energy to attaining the things in life that I want. It is as if a great weight has been lifted from me and I can now be myself without having to worry about the day to day drama created by my former supervisor. The first day of my class was yesterday and I am really looking forward to it. The first project involves the creation of a form from cardboard laminate. I have a few ideas in this regard but I need to go out and purchase a new sketch book to catalogue and collect my concepts. It looks like I am going to need lots of glue and plenty of blades for my utility knife. Despite my current unemployed status, I feel more confident than ever.

Atlanta is a swell place to get Pizza, because the city lacks originality, All types are sold around here. Many Pizza places intown seem to emulate the Fellini's Pizza method. Fellini's pizza originated in little five points but despite numerous locations around the city, Sadly this original spot is now just a sad clone of its former self.
Here are some urls of some good, bad & ugly intown pizza joints:

I am interested in the observation of trees and the pressure that is applied to them in urban environments. Trees whose growth has been affected by the machinations of man dwell in the very epicenter of the conflict between civilization and raw nature . This careful balancing act can play out in many interesting forms before in most cases the tree submits to its own foretold doom at the hand of man.

I realize that I have been neglecting this blog to a rather large degree as of late but, have you ever had the feeling that maybe you just were not cut out for daily updates. Maybe this particular blogger has nothing to say on any given day. I am invisible in reality and nearly so in cyberspace. It does not really bother the writer that there is so little insight to choose from but damn, I do love the attention.
In the past, I was very interested in making the scene around Atlanta but these days, I hardly leave the house. It seems like there is no point, and its time to move on. I have met some really great people from my adventures but some just leave me wondering what's wrong with them. I have been enjoying my flickr account as of late and that too has been causing the writing here to literally dry up.
