I just booked a plane ticket to Minneapolis, Minnesota for the second week in August!! I am stoked. I will be driving down to Rochester, MN to see the Warren Mackenzie exhibit and later on I'll visit Warren's pottery and several other potters who I admire. This will be my second trip to what I consider the pottery mecca of North America. I have been thinking about this trip since May and finally decided to do something good for myself and go. Yea for me!
