The Glint of Light

“Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass” – Anton Chekhov

IMG_5257This was the wise writing instruction of Chekhov to his brother. Chekhov encouraged his kin to describe the setting in the details. And that is what captured our attention at the The Glass Museum. Relish the details.

  1. Welcome to my backyard! I hope you also had the chance to see the Chihuly installation at the old Federal Courthouse near the Museum of Glass, on Pacific Avenue (near the pedestrian bridge with the glass installations). That piece is magical at sunset, with the light streaming through it.

    Lovely photos.

    • I did indeed see it but not at sunset. Also saw the installation at the University of Puget Sound. Lovely!

  12. Hi Tammy,
    Yes, show, don’t tell! what beautiful glass art. I hope you are doing well with your studies—thanks for popping my (much-abandoned until this past week) blog, reading, and leaving such a thoughtful comment. All my best, always, Nancy
