A Piece of Beautiful Glass
Posted April 21, 2008on:
Last week I went to see an exhibit of Roman art from the Louvre. Among the many large (and incredible) pieces of sculpture was a glass case displaying smaller, everyday life items. There was a lovely, shallow bowl in the case, made of the most beautiful translucent blue glass. I looked at the bowl and thought: “that’s what I’m striving for” . . . simplicity, clarity and beauty – in my surroundings as well as in the way I live my life.
Perhaps the memory of that bowl can serve as a touchstone for me as I continue my quest for order, serenity and peace of mind.
