The escape

 The semester before my student teaching I took a ceramics class.  That is where I fell in love.....with throwing on a wheel.  When throwing, I wasn't thinking about anything else and the world slowed down.  It's one of those things where you begin to notice the smallest of things; the feeling of the clay on your hands, it's smell of earth, the sound of the motor spinning the wheel, and the pace of your breathing.  

It became an escape. 
Question: What is something that allows you to escape or slow down for a little while? 
Let me know!

  1. Being around flowers! They live at a much slower pace than we do. It helps keep things in perspective. :)
