Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: December 27, 2014 at 6:30 am I wanted to watch a glassblower at work when I was in Ireland a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen.

If the Steuben glass museum is stil there. I watched them many a time. . I like the shine you placed on your haiku. and as regards your comment: you are right of course. Reply Jim says: December 27, 2014 at 7:18 am Love it, Mark. I too can see the glass blower making your star. 🙂 And yes, we did get to watch the glass blowers at the old Waterford factory near Killarney. Sooo interesting. They made a lot of items for us to watch but they didn’t make stars while we were there. I am thinking though, that the process might be to blow a main part and then by heat fasten the rest of the points. Reply jhanagan2014 says: December 27, 2014 at 7:35 am Beautiful, Mark. You conjure the human caring and craft that ensouls and enlivens so many of the things that fill our world. I am mindful of the Buddhist blessing before meals: “seventy two labors have brought us this food…” I wonder how many hands have helped to brew the tea in my cup. Your haiku reminds me to be appreciative and grateful. Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: December 27, 2014 at 4:53 pm I am profoundly grateful for your insightful comment, John. Thank you. My day is complete! On Sat, Dec 27, 2014 at 8:35 AM, Mark M. Redfearn wrote: > Reply janicead says: December 27, 2014 at 5:25 pm glassblower’s breath, stunning.
