What I like most about visiting the glass museum in Corning NY is watching live glass blowing demonstrations. On my last trip to the museum, I realized that the demos at the end of the day were more elaborate than usual. I don't know if this was an official program or something the glass artists did to alleviate the boredom of making simple vases all day long. During one of these extended demonstrations I watched two of the glass blowers collaborate on making a very large platter that contained a lot extra details. Glassblowing is a fascinating medium, there are numerous inventive techniques for creating shapes in glass and I'm always surprised at how they arrive at the final design.
When the demonstration was over, I walked around Corning. I strolled down West Market Street which seems to be the "Main street" of Corning. I then turned down Aurene Lane West to head back to the hotel and the sun was setting. The brick buildings were a bright orange which reminded me of the colors of a Western landscape. I may have had Western themed paintings on my mind because I had viewed a number of landscape paintings at the Rockwell Museum earlier in the day.

I think this is a really great reminder for when life, or the way people treat you, gets you down. It’s important to not let others decide how you are going to feel about yourself, find something positive in your life to celebrate, and let your light shine! What makes you shine?

Naples, N.Y. ~ Our legacies are determined not only by our actions and our deeds but also (and, perhaps, more importantly) by how we made others feel. This inscription at the tippy top of Clark Gully brought me feelings of contentment and hope. So, leave your mark on this life and make it a good one!
