Open Your Eyes and SEE



All these people, this big mess,

The world’s condemned us all to each other.

Watch the news, tune to a station,

Wait for it, you’ll hear another–

Destruction, distraction, desensitization.

We hear it all everywhere, every day.

The passion is gone, now sensualization

Replaces three words people used to say.

Love? What’s that? Divorce is a trend.

Antique is the message, dead is the day.

People “…just don’t have the time to spend.”

Radio waves, light on the screen,

Money in your pocket, life must be green.

Think about the last time you spoke the truth.

Three words to say, and everything to lose.

Keep a smile on your face, lie to the crowd.

In your Mercedes, the radio’s up too loud,

You don’t have time for what you need,

You can’t hear out the window, but you can see.



The picture is just a snapshot I took when leaving the studio just after the workshop– some of my inlaid tree designs on my most popular cup shape. It’s nice to take a casual group photo every once in a while ๐Ÿ˜‰

The summer is almost over (in my mind) because classes start in 37 days. It’s not that I’m excited for school and assignments and responsibilities and working in the basement of the cafeteria… it’s because I’m excited to live close to my friends and the studio again… and civilization in general. Oh, and I am excited to get to know my new roommate… the first few months with a new roommate are always interesting… and better than the last few ๐Ÿ˜€ I have a good feeling about her. We just need to get things sorted out with parking and dividing up room in the apartment. Nobody is going to draw a line or anything like that. I just can’t wait to get out of the middle of nowhere.

Other news… I am getting back to my hippie self lately. I made a “witch’s brew” tea blend last night. I made it super concentrated too. I am hoping it will help with my allergy issues and maybe make me feel more energized but less anxious. It definitely makes me energized, if nothing else.

      Well… I haven’t really taken close ups of any of those pieces because they were in bisqueware stage… but I guess next time I’m at the studio I can definitely take a close up ๐Ÿ™‚ or even better, I could just post a picture of the finished piece in good time…
