Last week I was adjusting to daily radiation treatments, so I never got around to writing my own or reading other people’s blog posts. This afternoon, I decided that I’m not going to be able to catch up reading other blogs, so I’ll just try to start fresh tomorrow.
One thing I did last summer was to go to an interactive history museum as early research for my next novel, which is set in a frontier area. I think I might make it a regular practice to post a few pictures from that every Sunday. And I’ll start today.

I love the pottery. I used to throw on a potter’s wheel. It takes all the mental energy, concentration, and physical strength a person has in the body and soul to make a piece. Practiced potters make it look so easy. I eventually made seventy five pieces. Many with creative glazes and artistic ornamentation. I know that I couldn’t do it anymore. I certainly have a much greater appreciation for cultures who have depended upon the practice historically.
I’ve always wanted to try it but I suspect I wouldn’t be any good.
It is fun just to get involved with the four elements; the earth, water, wind, and fire. It is an experience that brings it altogether.
I LOVE interactive history museums! I grew up near one in New Jersey, Allaire State Park, visited Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts, and also went to Williamsburg, VA (though we didn’t shell out to go into anything in Williamsburg).
I’ve been to Sturbridge Village and would love to go to Williamsburg. This was Conner Prairie near Indianapolis.
Living history museums are so cool. I loved Williamsburg. Also, I went to a place in Illinois called Cantigny. I think there were large tanks outside on the grounds. My little cousin loved those.
Hi Michelle. Yes, you’re right about Cantigny. That’s only about 90 minutes away from where I live.
Hope you’re feeling a bit better today, Ruth
Thanks, David. Radiation isn’t too bad. Just tiring.
