Freedom’s Just Another Word

Yes, today’s the 4th of July and it has some special significance for me. It’s not just because I’m an American citizen that still believes in liberty or that I found a horse on Flickr painted all wrong. My grandfather, who passed away several years ago, and I share the same name and we share today as our birthday. Also, I *heart* my Internet friends who made this. Thanks Susan!

Beauty in clay

This is one of several amazing beautiful ceramic sculptures created by my good friend Sharon. She’s raising money through the sale of these pieces to fund an arts center in Mozambique. If you’re in San Francisco, check out her show at Ruby’s Clay Studio, 552A Noe Street @ 18th. It runs until March 1st.
