This may be obvious to you if you are reading this on my actual site and not on a feed reader or through email or something. I’ve redesigned my site again.
For the first time in 11 years I will not be driving to Ligonier to start a new school year in August. This makes me sad. I have been at Ligonier Elementary/West Noble Primary for 10 years plus a year at West Noble Elementary in the middle of that decade. The people there are amazing and it is a great place to work. I made a lot of friends and I’ll miss being part of that team.
Now I will be working at Jefferson Elementary, part of the Middlebury Community Schools. This makes me happy. Mostly happy to have a good job. My wife worked at Jefferson for a number of years until she decided to stay home with our kids. There are a lot of great people there as well.
The biggest news of the past 6 months is the arrival of our second child. Another daughter.
There is nothing permanent except change.
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
So much has happened here. So much is about to.
Back in the Blog Game
Well, it’s been over 6 months since I posted on this blog. Don’t worry, I’m not giving up. Just taking a little time off. 6 months… it has gone by in a blur. The next few posts will be a quick look at a series of changes that have happened and are happening in my life. I’ll try to work in a few new pots as well.
So get ready. I hope to cover topics such as: welcoming our new daughter, the new site!, my new place of employment, and a new sales outlet for my pots. Maybe I’ll even write about some new gadgets that I’ve purchased.
Here are some of my favorite pots that I made in 2014. Other than the wood fired cups these are all fired to ^6 oxidation.
