feeling gravity's pull

by karen #1965 third grade teacher well i fought gravity again, folks...and i won!...now if you haven't been reading the soul sister blog, you won't know what in the world i am talking about...here is the post about my disaster project...gravity gives art a bad name...

so, you caught up now...well, i got a new pot...because i just happen to teach my secret pal's son and he loved the pictures of the first pot (before it got broken) and he was really sad it got broken and he wanted me to do another...and i just love that dude...so i went a got this pot...this is the kind to buy...the $5 kind...

so...once again...i spread my stuff out like this...

and get to work...

and da da da daaaaaaaaaaaa!...i once again have a finished product...and look...no slipping and a sliding this time...

so...everyone is gonna be happy....
my little student dude is happy cause he liked it...
i am happy cause i not only felt gravity's pull, i conquered it...
and hopefully...my secret pal will like this pot when she is sitting on her back porch sipping coffee in the morning and eating powdered donuts and reading a medical journal about the treatment to cure a streptococcic sore throat in 24 hours...

so...i end this post saying something that reaches deep in my soul...never give up...endure...u push and push...and work and work...and try and try...and redo and redo...and you get the job done...

honestly...this pot was sweeter the second time around...now, since i have conquered gravity, i plan on using some concrete patch on the pot below this weekend...oh yeah...the bigger the better folks!...cause i now know i can
stomp gravity in the floor...

Read the scene where gravity is pulling me around
Peel back the mountains peel back the sky
Stomp gravity into the floor
It's a Man Ray kind of sky
Let me show you what I can do with it
Time and distance are out of place here

Happy April 30, 2010!
