the Potter and the Painter

The Potter and the Painter drank tea in the afternoon and wine in the early hours. they talked of Wabi Sabi and the Art of Impermanence, the Way of the East . They walked  Muddy Waters the dog in the midnight sun and discussed the nature of man and art. Sometimes they were quiet. The Potter mowed his lawn , the Painter and the dog observed this work . They drank more tea and listened to Jazz and Daniel Lanois . In the sauna important concerns were discussed -life, death and art. And there was Tea and the way of the East. No opinions were important , just being.

"horizons touched part 1"-Rogers and How, Galleria Elise.

We had a superb time preparing for the opening at Galleria Elise. The actual night was really lovely with a great cross section of musicians, artists and appreciators chilling out drinking wine and munching olives (and M @ Ms at my request!). There could well have been a red dot!! Lots of visitors over the weekend a nd Pori Jazz Festival begins also so there are thousands of visitors in Pori.
