Today is my first day off since the end of summer. A whole ten days have passed since the start of the school year. During the summer, I get accustomed to being home alone and having long stretches of days without David. But on these days off that are scattered throughout the academic calendar like salt and pepper, I find myself missing David very much. Just ten days ago I was a pro at being home alone and filling my days with meaningful activity. Today, I find myself restlessly doing work for the week in my living room, listening to the “adult alternative” channel on my TV, and watching the clock until I can go and pick him up. While some may see this as codependency and frown upon my sentiments this afternoon, I don’t care. I am a sap. Perhaps, all of this disquiet I feel is a result of having had a wonderful weekend together. Fall weekends always leave me with that lingering longing for more time to just be together.

I am a designer and craftswoman getting my hands muddy making small batch pottery for your home. These items are handmade and will show the marks of the process. Each piece is unique, bearing the same colors and similarities, with differences in applications of glaze and slight variations in size. All wares are made with attention to detail, including remnants of the hand at work and intentional imperfections. View all posts by Melissa
