It's time to write a spring newsletter, and I find myself a bit overwhelmed at where to begin.  Perhaps it's because it seems so much has happened in our reality since our last update way back in December.  Newly (or nearly?) finished kiln shed, just-about-finished kiln, stone retaining walls, pottery production, new kiln shelves, chicken coop under construction, our first wood firing on the horizon . . . it feels like a whole new world, and I am practically spinning with excitement. And then I realized that the best place to start is almost always where we are right now.   As messy and imperfect and incomplete as it may be, what matters most is where we are presently.
