    I remember when counting the years I had been blowing glass didn't make me feel old. I remember meeting people who had ten years and thinking that was amazing…now I have 14.

    14 years, and I feel like after seeing how short a time some of you have been at it, I should be much much better.

    I hear ya. A lot of my years were focused on marketing mostly and I feel behind, too! But I love that there is always so much to learn.

    Check out my YouTube Channel for videos of torches running on concentrators. I'm working on more, so stay tuned and keep checking.
