re: grief & pottery…

I’m no good at grief. … Really, I’m not. Or, perhaps I should say – I’m no good at polite, front-parlor, sorrowful-eyes, bring-a-casserole, hold-your-hand, murmur-platitudes grief. THAT I’m no good at. But I can rock the hell out of some get-drunk, scream-into-the-storm, curse-wildly, laugh-inappropriately grief.

“Love is the poetry of the senses.”  ~Honoré de Balzac When you’re someone like me (Virgo & OCD), if you’re not careful, you tend to start to think you can control things… you can organize, research, plot, plan & schedule – and you’ll know exactly what to expect & when. You begin to believe you … Continue reading
