daily diminishing (day 134)

I am drawn to clear glass vessels. As a child, I learned to make terrariums and I still hold onto lidded glass containers that I know would be perfect terrarium environments, although I have not made a terrarium in many years. Yesterday, I decided to let this lidded jar go. Last night, I dreamed I opened my cupboard and discovered another one just like this.

“Glass is material sea. It is sea made solid, its translucence captured and held immobile.” Peter Ackroyd
