A Potful of Memories

Some time around 1994, while she was in third grade, my daughter Gretchen created a clay pot.  It is well done.  It has a nice texture, the colors are sublime, and it is also functional.  I have used it in some capacity or other since she created it.  It has held change, my toothbrush, pens, and gifts from students.

What makes it great though, is the connection between the creation and the creator.  I love Gretchen, and therefore I love what she has created.
