Number 14, Welcome to the Solar System

Currently our outermost.
Congratulations astronomers and Neptune for the discovery of a fourteenth moon orbiting the planet.  Hooray!  Maybe there is water there frozen somewhere in the yet-to-be named satellite's crust.  And so from there, with a little luck and the formation of an atmosphere, perhaps provided by the warmth of the Sun becoming a red giant, we will have another possible place to colonize once we have destroyed Earth!  Check out the full story of number fourteen's discovery at Number 14. But make sure to cast a vote (via comment to THIS post) on a name for Neptune's baby!  I wonder what the child number limit for government assistance is in our solar system.

Paths in Clay cover

Paths in Clay, a novel

Paths in Clay is a coming-of-age story about Jack, Allan, and Miller; three friends who return to the “palace”, a place where they studied Koh Loh ceramics, an ancient clay tradition passed on from an extinct culture.

When finished with studies, one must depart from the palace and venture out, not returning until they have established a direction or "path" as a clay artist.

Ten years have passed since they left their great Koh Loh Master Potter. Reminiscing about their days as students, Jack, Allan, and Miller embark on their anticipated return to the palace, during a ceremonial kiln firing and celebration - a time when the Master Potter’s former students, their students, friends, and friends of friends all come together to fire their pottery in several wood-fire kilns.

The journey takes them far from their humid tropical region home of the lower peninsula and delivers them to the bitter season of the snowy highlands. When the three men arrive, Jack is face-to-face with his palace-time girlfriend, Kirsten. She informs the three men that their master has grown ill. Amidst a celebration, among old friends, Jack, Allan, and Miller will discover the true nature of their friendships and complete one cycle of their lives and enter the passageway to another. The choices they make will forge ahead a renewed purpose as their roles in clay traditions confirm their paths; passing on Koh Loh clay to the next generations of potters.
