My 1995 Chevy S-10 has been well maintained. I submitted a proposal to The Ohio Arts Council this morning to restore and transform it into an art truck. Keep your fingers crossed for me dear readership. I can't wait to start! Keep coming back to this post, and I will show you my progress...if I get the grant.
How I miss my kiln, and my classes in Columbus Rec centers where I could make and fire my pottery? Let me count the ways...I miss the throwing of pots on the wheel. I miss putting glazes on them after firing them into bisque ware. It was so elemental for me. I used earth, water, fire, and air. How perfect an art. I grieved when we bombed Babylon as we destroyed perhaps the oldest kilns in the world as well as libraries. Sure hope we knew what the hell we were doin??? As an artist, I am deeply offended by useless wars....by ongoing senseless wars....by wars that only line the pockets of the war machine. I sign my pottery with a mark, two C's in crescent intertwined for my signature. I have also crafted signature rings for other potters. Usually the initials of the potter have to be reversed...but not on my mark. Sometimes, that is just how it works out...truly magical.
I don't know what else I can say about ceramics and how hard it is in the first place to get a pot made and put to the first firing...let alone all the stuff in between the second firing....when I think about it, it is a miracle...a sort of birthing....twice to get a piece of pottery to come out like it needs to be. These three are an attempt to making nesting bowls. I don't have a kiln right now. The parallels in how my kiln was destroyed on a personal level....by a landlord, and our country bombing the hell out of the oldest most precious kilns in the world did not escape me. Shame on the USA for destroying the middle east, and shame on my landlord (past) for destroying my kiln...Amen
PS And shame on me for letting it happen....amended amen:)
He didn't choose Etta James, when she was alive to sing to "At Last" which was her trademark song!. He chose someone else
(She goes unnamed in this blog). Stay tuned for the other 9 things I can not forgive him for....even though, he continues to praise his own presidency. ...I do not praise his presidency. You can just bet, I will be hard on him forever more...quote the raven forever more.. I voted for the bastard twice! I fell for his flowery speeches. I am very hard on me, for doing that despicable thing....I assure you. I am regretful about my vote every single day, as I fell for his lies to get into the presidency. He could have had Etta James come to the White House and do "at last: (she was still alive at the time)....but he didn't. She died a few months later. He also didn't close Guantanamo Bay like he promised (It is still not closed, yet he goes there and tries to suck up to Castro). He also didn't free "whistleblowers", while claiming in his inauguration that there would be transparency, or get out of the middle east ( He has only got us further into that battle). He did not punish the bankers that intentionally crashed our economy in 2008.They(the bankster are gonna do it again). How crazy is that? He lied about Obama Care....said we could keep our own doctors....there was no death panels...etc....he lies...with a smile on his face.... I think I witnessed Obama care killing my own Grandmother.and the prices for it has only gone up. I imagine as I talk with my classmates....I will find that Obamacare, killed their loved ones and took their inheritance! He did not punish the bankers that crashed our economy in 2008....turned around and gave all power to insurance agencies in addition to pardoning them. He covered crosses in churches where he spoke...swore his presidential oath on the Koran??? On top of the Bible....denied Christians asylum while granting Muslims entry into our county, while they are being beheaded in these country's....shall I go on? I think I should...and I have lost count. I was goin for 10 things I can not forgive him for....but I am sure I can come up with more, as I have been keeping track. I don't have TV. I don't read a newspaper. But I do witness everyday the mind controlled people around me in addition to the heroin addicts on my street...I am not sure which people are more gullible. They both think the other one has lost their way! Who should I believe? The heroine addict or the mind controlled slave of the corporate media? I must say....I do not know. They are equally baffling to me. Anyway. I regret voting for him (Obama). He lied and I believed his lies....simple as that. I won't believe his lies between now and the End of his term (End Of Days). I pray for the end of his term! My list of grievances that he has imposed on our country could go on further than up the road. I do not suffer from the psychology of previous investment syndrome. I simply believed him, and he lied to get in office.. He talked a very flowery good game...but I was wrong in falling for it.. He simply lied to get into office My heroes....are the Assanges and the Snowdens of the world (Whistlebowers, with a price on their heads) They are the ones who should get the Peace Prize not him....how stupid is it to give a Peace Prize to someone who murders with drones...boots on the ground....whatever. He is unbelievable, from now on. We would be very luck if he would be a lame duck president. I fear this is not the case!. Like I said....I regret the day I voted for this man.....I imagine I can come up with more than just 10 things I hate that he has done. I guess no one is really paying as much attention about what he has done, what he has said, and the destruction he has actually carried out.. I did not drink the Kookaide. Just ask me in person. I will tell you the truth. I don't have a TV and I don't have a smart phone or any devise that tells me what tto think What could I possibly know without these things? He (Obama) has done nothing but erode and tear down our country, and I regret the day I ever cast a vote in his favor.
