A Great Storyteller!

One of our favorite storytellers, Jonathan Kruk, has a sweet Christmas tale up on his website:

Jonathan Kruk's Lonely Christmas Tree

I highly recommend him. We listen to his CDs all the time in the car, and we sort of stalk him, attending many of his local performances.

Go listen! We consider him a local treasure.

Playing with Clay

I am taking my pottery class again, but spent most of the semester utterly devoid of inspiration. Finally made 2 things I actually like, though they're both still waiting to be fired...

First is a bas relief of a scene from a story I wrote for Mikro. He didn't want dinosaurs to be extinct, so I made up a tale involving a fairy and the gift of wings, and ended it with the dinosaurs having flown off to another planet and escaped death by asteroid...

And the other is to commemorate our year of homeschooling.
