A Lost Month

Glass versus RSV

A Lost Month

One day early last September I woke up with a tickle in my throat. A day later, I had a cough. No big deal, I thought. It’s just a cold and I’ll ride it out. Four days later I was in urgent care testing positive for RSV.

I am very lucky in that I haven’t been sick a lot in my life. This one got me though. I was down and out for a month. For a few days I couldn’t lie down to sleep and sat up all night coughing. I’m still feeling kind of weak.

So, no blogs, no newsletters, no walking the dogs, no going to the store, no nothing. Being sick is very isolating, and the opportunities for introspection were a bit much.

Strangely, the only thing I could do while I was sick was make glass. I would go to the studio and work as long as I could, then go pass out. I even did a few orders while I was sick.

I have no idea why this was true, but I really like some of the glass pieces I did while I was ill. So, if it seemed quiet on the Glass Storm front, that’s because it was! But now I’m back in the studio and ready for more orders.
