Gretchen molding clay

Watch potter’s wheel turn
Slowly mold clay into shape
Bowl not yet finished

Good Afternoon! #NaPoWriMo is not yet finished either, but I’ve lost motivation this year even before the midpoint was here.

Words remain stagnant
How fares April poetry?
I ask feeling blue

I have been busy scoring standardized tests since April 10th. And after staring at a computer screen for 3 and a half hours most week days, I have not had the motivation to put my own words on the screen. I have not even done a #haikuchallenge every day; though I have completed more than I have posted here.

We had a pretty quiet Easter Sunday – just the 4 of us. I cooked a ham and then after dinner, Gretchen worked on the potter’s wheel and Shawn set up a fire in the chimenea. I actually played with the slo-mo function for the video on the iPhone, watching Gretchen turn the clay in slow motion was rather interesting.
