Just to show how much can be put into 36 square feet and still have a spot to stand and a chair to sit on. I have a space to underglaze the pots and a table to handbuild when I don’t feel like driving to the studio. AND all the spiders are gone! (I shouldn’t say all. I read that you are never more than 10 feet away from a spider wherever you are. ) At least all the spiders that could be seen are gone from the inside.
Now that I know that the beautiful black spider that I became so fond of for its intensely protective maternal ways was a Black Widow getting ready to present me with about 500 of its babies, my attitude has become less laissez-faire and more authoritarian. Me in, spiders out.
I ran into a chalk and chocolate festival in my neighborhood the other day. I forgot it was happening, till we walked up to get a late lunch at The Juice Collective, my favorite sandwich shop, and heard the capoeira drumming. This festival started about 3 years ago and is getting a little better attended each year.
These drawings are fun, but I’d love to see these guys in action: http://www.impactlab.com/2006/03/09/amazing-3d-sidewalk-art-photo
Unfortunately, they were out of roasted red pepper and feta cheese sandwiches, but I made up for my disappointment by sampling chocolate – lots of different kinds of chocolate. And I’m sure I went home healthier with all those flavinoids and antioxidants. I sure felt happier.
