I'm here!

Howdy everyone.
I'm here. I'm good.
My computer is being weird and with school starting I have had little time to fix it, play with it, figure out what the hell is wrong with it. It just cycles through the starting screen, won't even go into the operating system. hmm.

Just not where I can spend my time, so, limited in what I can post unfortunately. All my photos etc. are sitting on my camera. Very frustrating.

School is great and the students are so excitied about our new year with the kiln hooked up and ready to go. Already they are begging me to glaze. They all remember our color "families". I am so very proud of them.

Still, it has been hard these first few days without my Sean. I miss him very much, as does everyone else. He was in charge of changing our music, and the silence when we forget to put in a CD is blank and wide. He did not just change our music. In many ways, he was our music. He danced and sang in all things he did. The music we listened to was his collection and it spanned from Elvis to Melissa Etheridge to Coldplay. So the music stops and someone will say, "Sean will change it" and their face will fall and their eyes will widen and they will whisper...I'm sorry, I forgot for a minute...

We had a small ceremony for him. All writing messages on balloons, then we got into a big circle and released them into the big sky to float and carry our love to him.

I Miss You

Hey grrl, so sorry for your loss, I had no idea. I did wonder if you were OK. Good think I poked you because I have tagged you for the unspectacular quirk game. At least it will give you a moment to laugh...
