What do trains have to do with glass blowing?
Well it comes down to proximity, a dash of philosophy, and a reason to celebrate.
If you do a quick google or drive past our studio you’ll find a set of tracks, not a stone's throw from studio and the train yard, a few blocks away. The horn blows at all hours - sometimes it’s twice a day, sometimes it’s twice an hour. If you’ve tried glass blowing here, you’ve probably heard them. If you haven’t - take a look at what we’re currently hosting, we’d love to see you!
But I digress, the point is, the horns are frequent, and their sound jarring. And what do we do? We celebrate! Why? Well here’s a poem why:
Thanks to some therapists 2,6
We tried radical acceptance 3
For fighting a train is an unbeatable battle 1
But cherishing them, an easy win 4
So celebrate, we do
Especially when it’s hard
Because gratitude is everywhere
If you learn how to see it
What do you have in you life that could be like the trains? Let us know what you think about this philosophy.
