Tree Maker


Tonight we had a ceramics class at the Art Center. The Workshop is called “Not Your Grandma’s Christmas Tree.” And. We made trees.

A lot of them.  I shaped mine with my hands.  I guess you could say they were Palm Trees.

I truly, am not a crafty artisan. In fact, I suck a little bit at these sorts of things.

And then it hit me.
This is just another occasion when I can’t see the forest for the trees.
