I read your comments often. Admire your love of glass and the propriter of the glass company.
My true loves are collecting beautiful glass, and this collection now also houses Blenko Of West Virginia the other love is
KFA Foundation Of America
I'm attaching some info for you.
Diverificcation is sometimes good.
Finding a love that can be everlasting . . and knowing ones self can come only with study.
The KFA invites you to a three day intensive dialogue / study at Pine Cottage of the themes of Authority — Thinking for Oneself — Perception of Truth with an emphasis on what it means to ‘stand alone.’

The year 2009 marks the 80th anniversary of the dissolution of the Order of the Star by J. Krishnamurti in Holland in 1929. His momentous speech before thousands of members of the order of which he was the head has been called one of the great religious discourses in history. California author Henry Miller said, “No one since the Christ has given up as much as Krishnamurti.” The speech was the culmination of almost two decades of distancing himself from the organization that found him, nurtured, and educated him for a role called “The World Teacher.”

Krishnamurti’s declaration of independence is as relevant today as it was eighty years ago. Perhaps it is additionally relevant as religious fundamentalism, evangelical missions, and radical religious movements attract ever growing numbers of followers. The themes of ‘authority’ of all kinds, of ‘thinking for oneself’, and ‘perception of truth’ are perennial human issues. While Krishnamurti was setting himself free of psychological and religious authority at age thirty-four we today face our own similar challenges made more complex by a vastly more sophisticated psychological and religious cultural consciousness than eighty years ago.

For two and one half days a small group of participants will penetrate together the speech of 1929 and look deeply into our own minds to unravel the hidden depths of ‘authority’ and ‘truth.’ Study materials will be mailed out in advance of the event.

Program Fees: The Krishnamurti Foundation Fall Dialogue/Study tuition fee is $125.00. Payment in full is required upon registration.

Registration: On-Line registration can be made at the Krishnamurti website at: www.kfa.org

What is going on with you?
Marige and others have ask there was no visible response.
Will you return to WV?
What will you do?
Are you doing another specialty?
What are your goals for the next 5 years? As a regular blog reader I as many others feel a vested interest in your personal growth and development. Also a morbid curosity.
Nothing personal has been said in a very long time.
Blenko Glass seems to be doing well, I was in Milton last week. VC was stocked. New ladies, Sol is correct - nametaps would a good suggestion, also having the ladies introduce them selves to customers.
Not since Angee was there has there been such a mood in the Visitors Center.
Where is Bill? Did he and Rick stay in Milton?
Enuff questions for this day.

Sadly, both Diane and Mindy left Blenko earlier in the year for new jobs. I agree that nametags would be a good idea! Some of the new folks are not as friendly.

Are all collectors also whinners?
So what if a saleslady doesn't know your name.
Mr. PB and I would not be offended.
