i had some time away recently. i walked away from my job, my friends, my home, my dog (gasp!) and my comfort zone for a full(!) week. it was pure bliss. my mother, who just turned 76, rented a house on the Oregon coast for our family vacation. i won’t bore you with the details, but that week had all the elements of a glorious time!! i took the opportunity to create a glass float at a do-it-yourself glass shop.
