the trouble with love
Love, sometimes it can bite you on the ass. A little nibble can be nice but leave teeth marks and it’s no good. This is the summer of love it seems. In fact I just went to Woodstock for the first time last week. I have so many friends getting married right now. This bowl is a wedding gift that I made for my friend and her new husband. The design was inspired by their wedding invitation. Beautiful birds on pink paper, chocolate brown envelopes tied with a blood red ribbon. I just finished another wedding bowl for a friend whose best friend just got married. Two other friends of mine are marring each other and I need to make them a little something too. I am having a problem with love. The problem is that I love this bowl that I made and now I don’t want to send it. It does not happen to me often, loving my work. I usually don't get attatched and joyfully send it off knowing it will make someone happy and there will be more to come. Then again love does not happen that often. My dad had this saying comparing love to birds, something about letting them go and if they come back they are yours…you know what I am getting at but sometimes you just don't want to let it go.
