Sidetracked for the time being...


Hello my dear readers...

I need to confess something to you. I am a bit burnt out. I love writing this blog and it has been such an amazing experience thus far, but I think I may need some time away. There have been many big changes for me in the last year or so... I've moved to a new state, I've finished college (FINALLY!), and my creative practice has shifted focus a bit.

You see, I think I need some time away from clay. We aren't getting divorced, don't worry. I just think we need some time apart so I can really figure out what I want from our relationship. While I wait for another ceramic studio opportunity here in Albuquerque, I will be busy making many other things...

I hope to spend the next couple months sewing, beading, quilting, building/restoring furniture, printmaking, embroidering, painting, weaving, drawing, training my new pup, finding a good job, exploring the Duke City, making new friends, and cooking up a storm. And I will be sharing all these fun things on a new blog, Folk-Art-Life... Think of it as The Mud Bucket's spunky kid sister.

I want you all to know, I am not abandoning this blog. I couldn't after all I've experienced with it. But it will be far and few between as far as posting goes for the next couple months. I hope you can understand and I hope you'll come stop by at Folk-Art-Life in the mean time.

Thanks, friends!

-Jesse Lu

Clap, clap, clap!!! I've loved your blog for a good long while now Jesse. It's been a valuable tool in helping keep my eyes open to what happening in a world that's so much bigger than my imagination made it out to be.
Thank you!

hey you ! glad you made it and are "entrapped"... i said that for several reasons - one of which was the completely different sense of TIME people in that state seem to have. it's great that no one is stressed or in a hurry, it's just completely counter to my overworked and multi-tasking brain....

so...
good for you for breaks and other adventures. and you know it's completely normal to "shut down" and re-charge for a minute [or two] after completing school.....

stay in touch !
[and yes - learning how to fix sinks WAS indeed fun. i can re-wire almost anything electrical thanks to my grandfather !}
hugs.

I can completely relate to your post having just graduated in May myself. I have been having some of the same thoughts although I might be a little to addicted to the mud in my veins. I do want to work in some other mediums that I haven't given much time. I've been feeling a little of the post-graduation blues. Good luck out in Albequerque! I hope you have many adventures and I will keep an eye on your new blog. Love
