this hit me so hard. i'm also new to pottery -- it's humbling and grounding. i want to be a better person in other peoples' lives. but it's so hard when i don't know myself, and it makes me wonder how they could possibly know me, when the person they see isn't the person that i am
This is very emotional and great. Who would have guessed I'll be sad by a coffee mug. I've actually just started life drawing and getting back into drawing seriously since middle school. People say I'm not bad but I'm nowhere near the skills of others but I hope to get better. I've been going through a serious rough patch and a rethinking of my life but I'm glad this exists to give me hope. Thank you
I started learning to throw on the wheel this summer & it's made handmade pottery so meaningful (it's also pretty hard!). This was gorgeous, thank you!
oof, so much comes back to old friends, doesn't it
Man... This one gave me goosebumps. Pure poetry... Nostalgic, and not-nostalgic at the same time... What the heck??? You sorcerer of words and pictures and emotions and memories and whatnot!!
This comic made me cry - thank you
I lost all of my closest friends recently.
They aren't dead, but I don't know that we'll ever be close again. It doesn't really matter why.
The pain is almost overwhelming at times, and the loneliness never really leaves, even when I'm with people.
Whatever the background is to this comic, the idea that one day I may be at peace with this loss gives me some comfort. Thank you.
This, this is extremely moving. I... wow. Thank you.
Beautiful writing, ND. There is a space in all of us for the friends we’ve loved even if they’re no longer in our lives.
This is so sweet, thank you for sharing.
