cura te ipsum

June 2015 was kind of a hellacious month. A friend and an acquaintance were taken violently from this earth, work was stressful, and it seemed impossible to see beyond it.  I was struggling to see the point, and not much made the point seem worth it.  But I knew July would be full of a Ceramics and Mixed Media class at FHSU, and I was looking forward to that.  I decided that I would use the class and what I learned there to heal from the heartbreak and stress.  So, as a Tribute to June 2015: Cura Te Ipsum (heal yourself).
