There are deep words that sound
Sound throughout the doings of a day
Working, Running, Cooking
Can cover them for a spell.
But as a bell clanging
The tension of the sound carries.
So there are words there
From behind trees
And main roads.
In places where people gather
And are alone
And at the pause before sleep
For me now the deep sound
And the words
The sound of your name
And the answering echo
Calling in my heart’s space
Your name before me.

My name is Terry Cotter. I’m a potter.
I have been potterising for over 20 years and stock a wide range of ceramic goods in my shop The Potter’s Reel, down here in Lower Swell. The shop is named after my potter’s wheel which goes round and round. Like a reel.
I’m currently compiling an album of pottery songs,” Now That’s What I Call Pottery Music”. So far I have Kiln Me Softly With Your Love, Love Like Blood by Kiln Joke, Wheel Meet Again by Dame Vera Lynn and a couple of Richard Clayderman tracks.
If you have any ideas for songs please let me know. They have to be connected to pottery though because the album is about pottery. Otherwise they wouldn’t fit.
Here are some reviews of some of my favourite bits from the world they call “Art”.
Water Lilies - Classic impressionismismism. Always sing, “Well it’s One for the Monet, Two For The Show…..” when I think of this painting. Elvis was a good painter, dab hand at varnishing apparently.
Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Wolf? – I was! Goes on a bit.
Pet Sounds – The Beach Boys – “Woof, Miaow, Chirp, Oink,Squeak”- these are pet sounds too. I would include tortoises and goldfish but they are quiet on the whole. Goes on a bit.
Finnegan’s Wake – James Joyce - Ihaven’tgotafrigginclueliketherestofyouwhatjimmyisonabout diddlyfeckindee! Goes on a bitabitabitabitabitabit………………
There will be a party in the village hall on Wednesday to celebrate the first anniversary of our sleeping policeman. I won’t be going because it gives me the hump.

Can you help? Recently I found to my horror that I am 75 per cent lettuce. My man says these must be my salad days but I am not so sure as I would have thought being made of cucumber would be more appropriate. Any tips?
Well firstly I have a surfeit of oil and salad dressing which with a quick vinegar stroke will flow nicely, so fun times are just waiting for us.. Talking of tips, baby if the attached pic is a self portrait then yes, I have one hell of tip for you RIGHT NOW.
Can’t concentrate, can’t walk properly, I need rid of it quick. So throw on the onesie and getsie here quick. I got mine on already. Bring that cucumber. And some chillies. Spice it up girl.
