The falling leaves gather around my pottery wheel. My throwing days have come to an end for the year.

The sky was not 100% clear on Friday night but thought the clouds added drama. I was disappointed, however, to see that my photographs were not as... Continue Reading →
I usually don't complain about the weather unless it is cold. I do not like being cold. If it is below 70 degrees, that's it. I'm complaining.
