Hi, it's me, Lien 👋🏼 ...taking a breather with the very last baby pot to carve. Dudes, I'm beat! Throwing, trimming, and carving all week — on my ass, sometimes bent over, all the time navigating precision tools — can make a body cry. But I LOVE it. I depend on yoga and tea-coffee-snack-nature-bike breaks big time. It's Friday here! 🎌 Wooooh!
P.S. 'LYNN' is what my names sounds like. Most Japanese people find it very difficult to pronounce, so they call me 'Lean' or 'Len'. I used to get annoyed, but how can I? Some sounds — like the infamous 'R' — just aren't in their native language and tongue. Knowing that, being annoyed makes me feel like a shitty person. I definitely have a funny American accent when I speak Japanese, but I try and I help. Compassion is the better way.
