Ran away for the long weekend


This post is about Tom. He fell in love with wood turning this fall. This long holiday weekend we drove north to Sebastopol, Ca. He and his buddy Gary took a 2 day class from a master.


Tom and the teacher Jerry Kermode and the very thin bowl Tom made.

The leaves are still turning in Sebastopol. This was before sunset with the sun behind me but the moon is very real.

The old Apple Drying buildings across the street from the teachers studio.

Another view of the apple drying building - liberties taken with photo playing.

This was Tom's weekend. I too had a great time seeing Sebastopol, Petaluma, a great yarn store and having tine with a long time friend and lunch with good friends.

The hardest part was driving back down to LA. I hate the drive across LA to Orange County. I consider it driving through the "belly of the beast". Flying in and out is much easier.

As my mother in law used to say - a good time was had by all.

It's a beautiful bowl! There's just something so warm and wonderful about wood and holding a nicely done piece in one's hands.
