It's A Wonderful Life

I took a break from making these to go across town to the art fair and say hi to my friends exhibiting there.

While there I bumped into Mark. I see Mark once every ten years or so since we both graduated from college back in the '70s. Odd that in a town as small as ours I don't run into him more frequently.

Anyway, every time I see Mark I'm prone to wonder about how things might have been. See, when the potter who gave me my start back in '76 was looking for an apprentice to help him out, I wasn't the first student he called. Mark was.

When I see Mark I always wonder what I might have become if Mark had been more interested in making pottery. I might be a rich stock broker or a famous musician today.

Damn you, Mark.


  1. what if...but then think how many other things you wouldn't have had if you hadn't gone down that route...

    1. It's been a good life that almost didn't happen. :)

  2. I would be willing to bet that you would have ended up in some form of the arts.

  3. P.S. That is a really nice little(?) box/ covered form.
