My work is done for the year, the gifts are wrapped and I shall be heading back to MK this afternoon to catch up with family & old friends.
Before I go though I wanted to say a few words. It's been one hell of a year one way or another and I'm not sorry to see another one rising on the horizon. However, it is a gift to be able to spend my life getting muddy, making pots and sending them off to new homes with loving owners and for that I am truly grateful. So thank you all! Thank you to my tribe of friends and 'followers'. It means a huge amount to me that anybody appreciates my work and you are increasingly many & so lovely that its always a joy to get out there and see you. This is the only work I've ever done where you only get positive feedback! (I'm sure someone finds it not to their taste or whatever, but they walk on by & don't stop to tell me, so all I hear is the good news).
I wish you all as much pleasure, joy & positivity in your own lives, whatever form they take.
The pots and I will be back at the market on Jan 17th and hope to see you then. At the time of writing there is still one place left on my beginners course starting January, which you can enrol for online. If you have an urgent need for an emergency pot before then, my online shop is open and has live stock levels, so you can order to your heart's content - but they won't get dispatched until I get back from my gallivanting. :-)
My best wishes to you for the holiday season, I hope it will be full of love, laughter, light & nourishment!
I leave you with a new discovery that I found this morning, Eric Whitacre's amazing virtual choir. As some of you may know, I have done some choral singing myself and one of the things I love about it is the phsyical experience of hearing voices. Some recorded singing, including this, replicates this incredible feeling for me. This is a great time of year to feast all the senses.
