Subject: RE: Fall into Winter Declutter & Fitness 2013
Delegate! I did not feel any better after the hot bath, of course, so I phoned Vanessa in the country and asked her to find a brown sugar softener maple leaf - on that shelf - and wrap it and take it to the library for my secret Santa since I was clearly not going to drive 40 miles. I also told her she can load and fire the kiln before Christmas regardless of how little is in it. She is making gifts! She told me her dad, with homeopathic training, is interested in my problem and would talk with me on the phone about it. I certainly am interested in talking with him. One never knows where another answer might lie.

I did do FB and read emails and returned two responses to a potter in NYS re kafuffle with an arrogant, over-bearing... male (on a clay forum) who considers my opinion "a personal attack". He wants a response and I just do not have the energy. For those who cannot hear.... She assured me I was not alone. I decided to almost just walk away but for his demand, so I posted on the thread:
"But I am not perfect in my way of putting things
because I had the divine simplicity
of being only what I appear to be."
Fernando Pessoa

And added: "I need my energy to make pots and live life."

I shall ignore this creature in future.

Now, I feel almost enough energy to go to the country but it is late and a silly trip of almost 3 hours for a 2 hour event. I messaged my regrets.

Maybe I can walk to the library before it closes.
