Oh yes, it's the loon! Did you like that whiney post yesterday….. deep thoughts.
One friend pointed out I should quit pottery and start a greeting card company.
On Sunday night I wrote the letter to Head of the Ceramics Dept stating I just can't possibly take this job as Ceramics Lab Tech. It would take me out of the studio too much but, sigh… I am such a kick ass potter who is just so incredibly busy…… doing what? Oh yeah I had a herd of Brownies here last month and I'm a bit short on my electric bill this month.
After a couple phone calls, a visit to the college campus yesterday to slide the letter under the door of the guy who interviewed me, talk to myself on the drive there and just plain buying that ticket on the crazy train.
You just need to slap yourself and say this is a great opportunity!
How many times do we say, NO to things because of……
well this blog isn't long enough to list the excuses.
So for once I said, YES!
Do something different, get out there……. and then
Heidi posted this great article from the NY Times on her Facebook page
and it was awesome and boiled down to get out there!

Can I work at the college, run the gallery and still make pots?
And then there is that gardening, fishing thing I love so much……
Well I will let you know…..
For now I am embracing the "Yes", deciding to pay my bills, have
a bit of a financial cushion and talk to real people because 8 chickens and a cat do not talk back.
I gave myself a one year commitment and can re-access this time next year.
Maybe I won't need to be so crazy and I kick back and relax for a minute.
nahhhhhhh, that will never happen……
