What a night……
I grabbed the camera and snapped a few images before I got busy catching up with so many friends!!
Meeting new friends, (finally met Alan Kradlak and he's a neighbor now:), selling pots and spending 6 hours tweaking (not twerking). There were so many surprises during the night and it was all grand and fun! We closed at 9 pm, but we lingered, noshed and chatted; finally around 9:30 pm the last price sticker got on the last pot. Gosh, I had a lot of pots for this opening…..
Exchanging stories of what we have been up to this year and all I can say ……. it has been a challenging year for so many of us. One friend summed it up; 2014 has just been weird.
Couldn't have done this gallery thing without him….. glad he got off the boat and got a beer!
Around 10 p.m. we turned the lights out, dragged the cooler of leftover beer and water down the two flights of stairs, I now know by heart and felt so good to know …… we made it! The door is open and I have a place to go every Friday for the next year!
I don't need to pack down, move tons of stuff, load the trailer and drive 12 hours home. I turned off the lights, blew out the candles and drove 40 minutes home…… to a cranky cat who was really ticked off that he wasn't in the house sleeping.
This morning I slept in until 7:30 am, Butch let the chickens out and I am headed to the beach for good walk (ok hobble) and recharge. This is the first time in ages I feel like I can get back to the rhythm of my life, phew! It's time to have a meal together, nurture, breath, catch up and renew our creative spirits!
So many thanks to all who came out, had a drink and supported the local potter!
