Mr Bunners the Rabbit Master by Mike Mitchell leads the way

Today has been one of the best birthdays ever. There are a myriad of reasons why, but a brief(ish) summation is that in so many ways it has been a normal day, but filled with unexpected joy in the mundane. Things I did not expect to happen did and are delightful!!! I am sharing a video I randomly came across on Facebook that is the marshmallow in the cocoa, icing on the cake, cherry on the sundae. 

 

How did I not know this existed??? 

I also am getting excited about all of the upcoming shows, fairs, markets I wlll be at. I got an email that I was accepted into craft cville at IX Art Park on April 15th. APRIL 15TH!!!! WHAAAAT?!?!?!?!?!? THAT'S LIKE A MONTH AWAY!!!!!! I HAVE SO MUCH WORK I SHOULD DO BEFORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As I have been photographing and photoshopping my work I do have plenty of it and it is looking pretty tight. Can I write that and not sound like an arrogant asshole? Aka, I am happy with my work, I have more ideas and want to, as always, keep refining. The great thing is I am just having fun, even with the parts of the process I have in the past abhorred. I am learning to accept. And through that acceptance find enjoyment. I realize how I often feel the need to apologize or justify what and why I am doing. I need to remind myself to have faith that my years of training and education and obsession have given me a good instinct regarding my work. So if I decide to name a piece "Lomp Lomp" there is a reason for it. HA! Poor Lomp Lomp. 

 I am downtown at a coffee shop editing my photos and thinking what the inspiration for my next Möbius Keramikk's adventures page will be, Neko Case, who I love, is playing at the Jefferson tonight, giving me fond memories of seeing her in Minneapolis, and I have plans in an hour. As Agent Cooper would say: "This is, excuse me, a damn fine cup of coffee."

Hello 34, you are looking, pretty good from my seat!
