A package arrived from Seattle for Sylvia while we were in St. Louis. We couldn’t figure out what it could possibly be. Turns out she got a package in return for the note she sent to Dale Chihuly. It totally made her day. I know it will stick with her forever, and if she does really become a glassblower (as she keeps saying she wants to), I’m sure it will be a part of the reason.
Last night, in preparation for our trip to see a Chihuly exhibit today, Sylvia wrote a letter:
For some time now I have wanted to be a glass blower. I hope this sketch helps or inspires you.
Her sketch was of a tentacled snowman, so I think she was pretty on target for good inspiration.
