Key ingredients to live enlightenment are: 1. Shakti (Energy) - Change Whatever You Can; 2. Buddhi (Intelligence) - Accept whatever that is not needed to be changed; 3. Yukthi (Clarity) - understanding that whatever you change, the whole world or what you call as reality is a constant and continuously changing dream, and 4. Bhakti (Devotion) A deep feeling of connection with the unchanging Energy or Master or Existence. When You Live all these dimensions experientially you are a Jivan Muktha or Living Enlightenment.
The designer of these pieces was working with a higher power.

Good day to all. Just got back from helping Kate get house ready to move in. Had time for nothing, did get Rog some crabs from Season's best Seafood, got lucky for right now Crabmeat is it's best. Drove through Shepherdtown and noticed alot of new shops. Love that little town. Lots of finds and good coffee and sweet rolls, music and a feel of what freedom stands for. People were buried under the sidewalks during the war. I brought home a homemade quilt that was made by a lady in Jefferson County, WV. Did not get to get my Blenko, again. Dang gone. Well next time I am going up to visit and have fun with the grandbabies. Will say that what I have read catching up has been good warm reading. Love the YELLOW. Everyone that does not know that is HIllary's Dad getting Blenko signed. Will say Mr.Blenko looks like a jolly fellow. He looks like a Santa type of man so why not a glass shop. I want to go down to Blenko before cold weather. Well glad to be back. Today is Sunday so say a prayer and God Bless, Roxie

Tell me the truth, your brother works at the factory, he's now 70 and he sends you glass every week!
No other explanation for the photos.
For me 40 days of Bruce S & Family Blenko Photos would not be enough.

Blenko Glass please, please start to make the items Glasslady publishes again!
These designs are timeless and we all want them back.
Katie T or Katie G and Mr. Walter Blenko are you listening??
A Blast from the Past! We want some of the old stuff. We want Bruce's entire collection!
Excellent quality, great color, good form, in each and every grouping.

Love Love Love
all your photos and glass.
Tell me what is your occupation?
Are either of you artist?
The eye for color and composure appears very well developed.
