how queer life is!

beach combing on portland, oregon coast

Ambivalent to horrified by the well-known subject matter and story line of  Vladamir Nabokov's, "Lolita," which I'm reading now, I am impressed by the author's agile writing, astute observational skills, immense vocabulary, and seeming psychological insight into the human condition.

I marked this knowing quote this morning:

"How queer life is! We hasten to alienate the very fates we intended to woo."

portland, oregon on my mind


 top to bottom: punch bowl falls, columbia river gorge, oregon, buddha relic, japanese garden, portland, oregon

 I snapped very few photos on our recent trip to Portland, Oregon because I wanted to savor every detail of its entire lush green, gentling beauty.

I'm sure this amazing state will find her way into my future pottery makings.

 My father passed away a week after my last post. We are undergoing a gut renovation of most of the first floor of our new home. I continue to teach my weekly pottery class and I'm just beginning to feel the desire to put my hands in clay again. I'm working on a 2-piece birdbath for our backyard. Most of my ideas for making ceramic pieces these days are related to our home and gardening.
