you crazy diamond!

Back in January I had my work in a show in Brooklyn. Exciting enough, right? That's what I'm saying. But wait. We go to the last day of the show, "Glass Threads" at Williamsburg Art and Historical Center. I had shipped three pieces including an old favorite, Sunny Side Up...which SOLD! Then I am thinking that it is pretty cool that I sold work in Brooklyn. BUT WAIT! I find out that Sunny Side Up has become part of the permanent collection of The Yuko Nii Foundation. That's what's what!

Do you know what I am saying? I am saying that if you are thinking about leaving your secure job and following your dreams, I am here to tell you that dreams come true. I don't care how old you are, if you know you're ready, JUMP! I have a link to a video of the Glass Thread exhibit because it shows the armonica, a glass instrument, popular back in Ben Franklin's day.

I guess that just floats my boat because I am a glass person and because today I learned that Guy Pratt, featured in Pink Floyd’s “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,”opens the song with an armonica. Pretty cool, huh?
