“If you want to live your life in a creative way, as an artist, you have to not look back too much. You have to be willing to take whatever you’ve done and whoever you were and throw them away.”

  2. On a hike, John Casteen (http://www.johncasteen.com/) told me this summer about how important it is to let go of student work, to make room for new and bigger possibilities – in one’s students and in oneself.

    I’d almost forgotten about his remarks – except I didn’t, because I’m giving away a cart of free pots, designing brand-new classes, and enjoying the goosebumps at your selected quote.

    Thank you.
