Little aggravations seem to build up to an insurmountable wall at times. Alone they seem so insignificant, but sometimes there is a snowball effect. Things can roll together so completely that they become indistinguishable from each other; they seem to form a large mass, powerful and destructive. I keep trying to remind myself that individually these things are meaningless and small, but I need more practice with this train of thought. None of these things are so important - or impossible - on their own. Not a one.
Sometimes I am overwhelmed with the feeling that I am not where I am meant to be.
The good news is I am finally, finally back in the ceramics studio. It is only once a week, but it makes huge difference. It will still be a long while before I'm making ceramics for sale at HEM, but every little step along the way should be lauded as a victory. So that the small things can roll together, indistinguishable from each other, to form a large mass.
