Lots of pots, lots of boxes, lots of small things to do, things to clean, lots of thoughts, wants. I want to clean the studio. I want a quiet place. The pencil cactus that did not grow much for the first few years after I got a small cutting from my friend has increased its volume since it moved to the studio about almost a year ago. It is extending its arms towards the kiln. The spider plant Lois brought in when she joined the studio during last summer has the first small lovely white flower. I love seeing plants growing here everyday, especially when I feel I am not growing much and still doing the similar work since the time I remembered. Once I finish the current projects I want to paint a forest mural on the big wall that was left empty on the west side of the studio.
