December was a month of recovering from the push to get ready for four art shows. I have done some raku firing but mostly taking it easy and getting organized. It seems to be useful for me to occasionally step back from my art.
My wife and I took a short vacation to La Jolla and Coronado in California over Christmas. We had lots of fun and good food. The San Diego Zoo was “zooey” with attendance at 22,000 as compared to normal weekday attendance of about 3,000. The drop in gas prices was a blessing.
Of course, we are always happy to get back to Sedona, Arizona.
