We finally got a break from the storms this week so I went on several small hikes and took a drive to the coast to watch the sunset. I shared on Instagram that as much as I love the soft turquoise waters and white sands of the Florida gulf coast, the rugged California cliffs will always be special to me. There’s a spot I always tell people about when they visit where you can stand on top of the cliffs and see a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean and watch the waves roll in.
Today I’m back in ceramics class with ten students and it always makes me so happy to be among fellow amateurs all learning this new craft. It’s a soothing feeling listening to the soft whir of the wheels spinning as we all learn how to mold clay together, what a lovely way to spend a Sunday.
