Our family just returned from a wonderful trip to Bucerias, Mexico where we celebrated both our daughters' graduations. It was an incredible vacation as it's been exactly half my lifetime ago that my husband and I travelled to the opposite coast and I was reminded once again of my rich cultural heritage. We saw baby turtles hatch and head for the ocean and a mother turtle laying eggs as well as iguanas of all colours and sizes and monkeys and parrots. But the highlight of the trip for me was visiting a ceramic studio in town and getting to paint my own pottery. It was a magical experience to sit outside with the sound of the ocean lapping against the shore while creating something so vibrant. If only the glazes that I used to use were this colourful, I think I'd still be creating pottery. Perhaps there is something new on the horizon for me...
