Terri Webster Schrandt’s challenge to us this morning on Sunday Stills is to find something that is glacier glue. Since I have avoided cold for the past 35 years, my photos reflect my lifestyle choices.
But now we’ve moved, and still no glacier blue pictures. Like Terri, I walked by a treasure, my brother’s high school pottery project on my counter top waiting to go to the office.
My brother isn’t artistic in a traditional way, but Mom had kept all of his pottery masterpieces, which were very heavy. They had been in our garage for 20 years. Vince brought them out, and they stayed outside during the moving process while I got the blues as I debated about what to do with them.
One piece of pottery was particularly ugly, something that only a mother could love. I thought about mailing it to my brother, but then I thought about the cost of shipping. I hesitated, but on the last day in CA, sadly threw it away. It was maybe more glacial than this one.
I could not bring myself to give UP the other three pieces, so I stuffed them in the nooks and crannies in the car after Vince was already headed down the road – truly a last-minute decision.
Now I’m so glad I did.
My friend Carol has the most unforgettable glacier picture on her blog the Eternal Traveller.
