Day 221

You may have noticed that I'm a woman of obsession. I'd argue that it's passion and I fully believe that if you're going to do a thing then do it properly. However, I concede that not everyone in the world sees these things the way I do (yet!), so for the sake of argument, I a woman of obsession.

Spirals would be one. Henry Moore might be another, quantum mechanics is a milder third and I guess glass could be considered something I have more than a passing interest in ;)

Yesterday, in York, I was walking past a little jewellery shop when this caught my eye. It was glorious sunny day and the light hit it just right. It made my soul sing. It took all my will power to walk past it - I'm soon to be a poor student after all. The problem was I was completely mesmerised by it. 2 hours later I couldn't get this bracelet out of my head so I went back for it. I decided that 40 quid for Venetian glass was a fair price and I've never seen anything like this before. I also knew if I didn't get it, I'd regret it. It does mean that I'm on bread and water for the rest of the week but at least I'll have something I completely love.
