Rain dance


#1

To all my friends in Phoenix area. I apologize for the rain I brought
to the area.

I cast my jewelry outside. It seems that my casting is the
equivalent of arain dance. When ever I have a critical casting it
rains.

I invested this afternoon and am burning out tonight. It raining
heavilyas I write this.

My casting area is now covered with a patio roof. Years ago before I
had the patio roof I would cover my casting area like Omar The Tent
Maker. Thank goodness my neighbor town home owners never complained.

Friday I pour metal. Not a major casting this time. Only 6 flasks.
Three gold and three silver. I hope it goes well.

Lee, surely you could offer your services to other drought stricken
areas of the country? LOL!

During a particularly long, dry winter in South Florida, a very
accomplished fiber artist asked me why my frog fetish was sitting in
a saucer of water on the counter. I explained that the Zuni had a
custom (as shared by Carol Rachlin, former professor of
anthropologyat U of Ok) of placing the fetish in water to encourage
rain to bless their crops.

Friend countered, “forget the saucer, let’s throw the frog in the
pool!”
