End of Week

I spent a few hours yesterday morning with photographer Randy McNeilly. I have known Randy for 15 years or more. He is a nationally known photographer and a good friend. I always enjoy hanging out with him talking about his travels, music, food, and life. He's a great guy and I am lucky to be able to get him to take images of my work. He and his wife Janet are real art lovers. Anyhow, he shot about 20 pieces for me including some plates and platters that I am submitting for an upcoming book.

Today I am back in the studio making pots. I'll be firing soon and look forward to that. Other than working there is little going on. Maybe Sarah and I will get away for a bit this weekend or just relax. Last night I finished my first Sherlock Holmes story, A Study In Scarlet. I don't know why I've never read any of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works. I picked this up at the library last week. I'm now reading The Hound of the Baskervilles. When I was in college I had a professor for Calculus III, Dr. Levine, he was well past his retirement, probably in his 80's. He loved to teach I think and wasn't one to leave the department. Anyhow the library at NCSU had a huge section that he had dedicated, all mystery novels. I never read a one while I was there.
