Have circumstances, finances, or health issues forced you to change the way you work? How did you respond to the challenge?
There have recently been a few discussions here on the Forums about injuries and illnesses and such. The economic situation in most of the world has impacted many of us. Some of us have experiened catastrophes and disasters like hurricanes, tornados, and earthquakes. Some have lost loved ones or gone through divorces. Some have had homes or studios (or both) burn down. Let’s look at how these kinds of things have affected us, and rather than focus on the negatives……. discuss how we have (or how we might have) dealt with the challenges. - John Baymore – President Potters Council 2012
