Finishing up the glazing
We have been listening to a story called the 'Trader Tales, Quarter Share" by Nathan Lowell. These are a series of stories, we are on the first one. A quiet and subdued story about a trader ship in space. It is (so far) a bit Utopian. People working together for the common good of everyone, pushing themselves and pursuing knowledge. Nice thought and a wonderful feeling to the story. There are even some scenes with the feeling of being at a craft show/ flea market. I was listening to CNN the other day while glazing (this is the first time listening to news in a long time) and it just seemed so tragic, so negative, so upsetting, everyone trying to bring each other down. We don't have t.v. I have not watched cable t.v. since I left Blacksburg to attend Alfred University when I was 21, that was around 20 years ago. I still watch it when we are at a hotel a couple of times of year. That can be strange. Anyway we have enjoyed listening to podcasts while in the studio. There is a world of authors out there that have a passion for writing and the new technology allows them to spread their talents.
Bruce is glazing with his shino again. This is the beginning of a world of testing in a different atmosphere for awhile.
