Well the sun is still shining and I’m still a long way from home. It’s hard being away for so long, and twice in close succession isn’t at all good. I am enjoying spending time with Paul Young and of course seeing my friends last weekend and hopefully this weekend too is great. Yesterday I was feeling on top of the world, shattered but happy, today not so. I’ve been thinking too much, I think that’s the problem, time off from doing doing doing to be thinking thinking thinking. I am finding this year pretty tough, I expected it to not be easy what with all the doom and gloom that is being plastered about all over the place by the doom and gloom merchants of this world. Today I have been wondering about all the different events and shows and exhibitions that I apply for and the success rate or not as the case may be. I think I need an overhaul of the way I go about applying for things and thinking about applications and maybe even the sort of things that I apply for. I’m thinking a little bit about the show this weekend, where I am exhibiting but just on a small portion of a shared stand with the Northern Potters Association. For me it is important as I think it is a great event to be seen at even in that small portion but how do I get into a place in my work where I can be good enough to be able to accepted for a whole stand? When will I feel like a real potter? Six years and a half or there abouts I’ve been self employed now and I feel like I should know just where I am aiming for and what I want to do but I’m a bit confused and maybe I’m trying to do too many things actually. Who knows?
