And some real exciting news from AKAR Gallery out in I-O-WAY:

Fundraiser for the North Carolina Pottery Center:
After receiving an email from our friend Mark Hewitt, we decided to do what we could to help the dire financial situation of the North Carolina Pottery Center. Ceramics marked by the logo of the NCPC are being featured on our homepage. 100% of the profit from the sale of these pieces will go directly towards benefiting the Center and its mission to "showcase the remarkable history and on-going tradition of pottery making in North Carolina."

Yippee! Here's the link for the fundraiser show. This show of support is tremendous. Thank you Sanjay and Co.

Meanwhile deep in the potter's mind, mine, a storm is gathering and a post-traumatic-stress post ?^$#%(& is brewing. More later.
