Give Meaning To Live

'The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.' Mitch Albom
Perhaps the creator of the quote had Blog friend Bruce Specht in mind,
Bruce Specht is a friend to Heart of Glass Blog, all of you weekly admire his glass and photography, my friend Shorty Finley would say: 'he's the kind of man who would continually grow trees for shade knowing he wouldn't live to sit under the tree" - I only recently discovered Shorty borrowed that phrase.
These beautiful, bright tangerine items are from Bruce's collection.

600D decanter with companion pieces 600DHB and 600HB spiral wrapped glasses in Crystal/Tangerine.
