May Musings

Greetings fellow earthlings!

I hope this finds everyone well, and enjoying Spring 2017.  Remember it is this moment right NOW that counts most!  Hugs!

Wow, so our pottery studio cleaning day turned into a week, and probably a month by the time things are really in place.  But the re-organization and purging of unnecessary ‘stuff’ is already amazing!  Kudos to all my studio members and our helpers I am eternally grateful.  We are continuing to create a space more easily navigated, cleaned and maintained and it is already showing!

Our latest adventure at Desert Dragon Pottery  was to fire our wood kiln for her third go-round!  This event happened the last weekend in May and was featured on livestream on facebook!  It started Friday and fired fifteen hours with constant attention and feeding fuel, quite an endeavor,  here are a couple of my personal favorites of mine that were submitted to the fire.

Lots going on in the studio this summer, a special class July 1 with Dave Beaty of Marvel Comics, drawing superheroes on coasters, mugs or plates, Summer Kids Camp, and some commissions keeping us hopping!

On the creative audio’lision’ side of life-

I was able to get into the recording studio and finalize all my ‘tracks’ for the current songs I am trying to get done.  I decided to ask a talented local musician lady Suzanne Lansford to add a violin track on two of them, so all should be finalized soon!  I have a goal to write a dozen songs in the next 90 days, planning on one per week and you all will be seeing this blog incoming twice a month now, I am stepping up my email game!!  And stay tuned for your very own free Mishy song coming to your email inbox SOON!  I have the track picked out and will be sharing it with everyone when I reach my first 100 subscribers (at 98 but 2 are me).  Stay tuned, you will probably be hearing from me very soon <3   Showing off my new guitar strap from Mother’s Day

Happy Groundhog’s Day

Good Morning Friends!

I intend to establish a regular posting pattern, most likely on Monday mornings, but I did not want to wait another day to begin so here I am on a Thursday….I may end up doing some extras if I get excited about something so maybe a good way to start regular blogging? Who knows but here I am !

I am having so much fun writing new songs this month, at a cool website I finally feel confident enough to partake of, well worth taking a look if you have a hankering to write songs at all-  http://fawm.org

One is up on soundcloud, I wrote it, recorded and uploaded it in an hour and ten minutes for a ‘skirmish’ with the theme “Addiction”-https://soundcloud.com/mishy-katz/skirmish-1a-addiction-overcome-fawm-2017

I was fairly happy with the results, especially considering the time restraints!  It certainly got me going for the FAWM challenge, and I will post more songs during this month.

Also working on clay musical goodies, mostly raku but some salt fired, I will share some of that fun too!

I hope this second day of February treats you well!

Love and Light,

Mishy
