St. Francis

Asked this the other day and found the answer to be that St. Francis did not write the prayer of peace of St. Francis. It is really lovely nonetheless.
Friends are wonderful gifts. Thank you all.

New Glory Hole

We have a new Glory Hole at Blue Sage Studios. It is go very sweet. It works very well. Roy bricked it and cast a ring and doors. They wrote Blue Sage in Playdough on the casting frame for the doors. Very cool.

We are blowing this Thursday after school. Drop by on your way home from work. HGTV's "That's Clever" will be coming on Saturday to film the process. Very cool.

Thursday, Memorial Day

Well, we began adding glass batch to the furnace last night. Yippee! We should have it cooked up and ready to go for blowing on Thursday evening. Drop by the studio and say hello. I look forward to seeing everyone.
We are planning on an informal open house at the studio on Memorial Weekend with glass blowing and ice cream and hanging loose.
On an esoteric note...
I moved a couple of heavy items in the studio the other day. My back is hurting now. I can see how the persistent pain in the body can effect the mind. That stress and pain is constant and as a result it clutters the mind. There is little respite for thinking on other things. Healing the body and the mind is important for whole living.
