Life, As It Happens....

It is with great sorrow that I announce the passing of a great bowl.  RIP 6.2.2012

It doesn't look like much because I wasn't so interested in lighting, but it's actually a beautiful bowl.  Sniff.  Was.  Was a beautiful bowl.

'The Kid' was playing in the pantry and found my ceramic stash.  I bought some items last December to complete my set of eight.  Now only seven bowls.  It never even got to meet the rest of it's siblings that are in storage!

I'm really really fond of my ceramic collection.  (Jerry Kry in Santa Barbara if you're interested).  But I'm proud of how well I took it.  Am taking it.  It's always such a bummer to loose something you really didn't want to loose.  And for a split second I wanted to play the blame-game but 1) there was no one to blame and 2) it is completely pointless to do so.  Spilled milk.  I hope I can keep that attitude for other casualties that will occur down the road.  Be strong Lady Chan.  Okay, I'm done.

  1. I mourn with you, sister. That is a truly beautiful bowl.

  2. Always glad to have some sympathy. You're probably a veteran to broken dishes by now. With this first real 'loss' I'm trying to be of the mind-set that it will be part of Mommy-hood. Sigh. I hope I can handle it with grace and calmness.
