Living in the moment
I know I haven’t blogged in a very long time, but something really struck me the other day. A friend of mine had hosted a party at a glass blowing studio out in West Roxbury. The deal included a 2 hour demo of glass blowing and one hour of pendants designing which after well cooked are free forte participants to keep.
The whole experience was really amazing! Just to see how creative people got with their pendant designing gave me a thrill. Shaun, the man in the picture and the owner of the studio, was extremely funny with his joke and his natural UK accent. I say UK because I personally couldn’t figure out whether it was English, Irish or Scottish.
His passion came up when the glass blowing demo began. He puts in his seven years of experience in every piece he creates. Somebody asked him about the process of glass blowing he said something that just is the title of this post. The glass lives in the moment and so does he. He has to keep rotating the metal rods at a certain speed and adjust it continuously so that the molten glass flows where he wants it to flow. One wrong move or even a stutter could have him start over.
Living in the moment. How many of us spend our days never being in a current moment?
