So, feeling down about everything and contemplating a different life forced me to do something I've always wanted to do, but never did. The timing was right. I signed up for a pottery class. Beginning Wheelthrowing.
When we went to that art show last weekend, I was talking to one of the pottery artists and mentioning how I'd always wanted to learn to do pottery on the wheel. I live very close to a reasonably well-known pottery school, and he told me I should sign up. I did show off my purse and my sweater to him. He was impressed.
When I got home, I looked on the website of this school. Turns out that registration was today! It was kismet. I had to sign up. So I did.
I am so excited! It has definitely pepped me up. And to celebrate we're getting dumplings from my favorite Chinese place.
So I'm feeling a little better for now. I'm still looking forward to talking to my therapist on Friday morning.
I'm still questioning all of this, but for now I'm excited to start pottery class. It starts at the end of April.
