ugh, weeds



(busy gardening gnome by somebody else, ordinary blue vase by Gary Rith)
So, yesterday after I got some teapots and wine corkers and bowls made I went out and got lawnmower gas and water filters and went down to the dungeon, I mean basement, replaced the water filters then changed the oil in the lawn mower--so pretty outside!--and then cut the grass--I love dandelions in the yard, bright yellow, but anyway, then I had to do THE BIG WEEDING around all the plants and gardens out there, and that's when you start to hate dandelions and all the other healthy weeds thriving in the garden and then at night I was totally beat and slept the sleep of the righteous although I dreamt I was architect to the stars, and was going to redesign the Guggenheim museum into somebody's house.

You really dream big, don't you, Gary? What a project! The Guggenheim! For some rich eastrrn potentate, no doubt?
Gotta say I do admire those marble pots, the unglazed ones. Really beautiful

The Guggenheim as a house? That sounds like a nightmare! All those stairs circling around and up.

Gary, your work can't be called ordinary. Those glazes are just too beautiful...
