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?


  1. OMG Linda! That's wonderful news! You deserve it, GF, & you're absolutely right about following your dreams!

  2. Thanks Jean! I have been doing a lot of chicken dances lately, that's for sure.

  3. Hey Linda,

    First of all - Congratulations - That is very Cool!
    And get this - I am SO EXCITED! I am doing it, well, a hop at least. I am going part time with my 9-5 gig to finally make something of this Art thing and YES, I will make it happen!
    Congrats again - that is very exciting!
    Talk to you soon,

  4. Jason, I will email you when I get a chance to give you a big woot woot. Till then I'm just gonna say that I see an endless row of green lights ahead of you! Hugs to Wen.
