Inadvertently a glassybaby crash test was conducted in our store on Monday, October 22nd at approximately 10:30 am. The newly formed crash test protocol involved a young girl, her twirling teddy bear, a soaring Tutu glassybaby, the clear glass heel of the glassybaby bouncing off of our concrete floor, the mother, of the young girl, catching the bouncing Tutu, midair, before injury to insult ( if you will.) And, the results are in...the glassybaby did not break. I have witnesses. Strong.
Last week I had one of those sacred encounters that just continues to resonate in my mind. A dear customer came in with a specific order...5 Dream. The giving nature of Dream seemed an important element. As I boxed them individually, I learned that these were to be gifts of soulful cohesion. To explain, the Dream glassybaby were being sent to family members, to be lit as our dear customer's husband was undergoing rigorous surgery in his battle against cancer. I found this to be so beautifully generous and poignant...and furthermore, to use the words: "We were diagnosed with cancer..." again won't leave my mind easily, the sheer beauty of that sentiment. We will dream as well and wish this family...health.
Until Next Time, Nicola
