Another Couple

On Tuesday evening,on my way back from Tel Hai, I stopped off at Sydney's for our first pottery hevruta [study session]. We are learning Mick Casson's "Pioneer Pottery",a formative but [at the time,many years ago] formidable volume,packed with dense technical information. I've come to realise how much of the book I didn't understand,or skipped over,or just forgot.For instance,right there in the preface [who reads the preface?]- this wonderful thought:
"Pioneering is not a matter of geography but of the heart.It does not necessarily mean doing something where it has never been done before,but rather,finding things out for yourself from first principles."
