This is Alaya. I met her outside my house yesterday and hardly recognized her. Some of her friends are moving in two houses from me.

Tomorrow I'm off to Dunun Village. The weather forecast says 100° (38° Celsius)!
The moon is near full and the nights will be warm. Bolokada is coming and I think it will be a big gathering this time.

When I come back there is barely two weeks to the first of June and we have not found a house yet. Wish me luck!

This is a small painting made on the computer and worked over with color pencils.

Yesterday a bunch of things I have made in class came out of the kiln. Out of thirteen pieces only two were disappointing, so I was really happy with the result.
