This Is My Life














    The photos above were taken by photographer Naomi Johnson during the Leicester Artists studio tour August 2010.  I was applying handles to some quart pitchers that Saturday morning and she snapped some nice photos as I worked.  In the photo at left is a caption on a large jug in the showroom.  I do occasionally write small phrases or sentences on pots.  In this case, I am reminding myself (or anyone else) that life is too precious to waste.  We all have distractions and a certain predisposition to focus on the things in our lives which annoy us, but with a little effort we can rise above this low-level static and be our best selves.
