Glass cookie jars,

Full time worker, mum and wife (the order changes according the day), book lover and glass jars fan, is here to share thoughts and ideas with anybody similarly inclined. There might be some social rallying every now and again, but nothing too radical, and nothing which could not fit onto a book page or inside a glass jar.

Why glass jars? I could unravell a tale of philosophical imaginery, such as the fact that we should all be a little more like glass: robust, resilient, transparent, versitile, useful and ecologically valuable, and yet fragile and liable to shattering if handled the wrong way.

But I would not be telling the truth. I chose glass jars because I like them, nothing more and nothing less than that. Oh, may be I am a little bit like glass after all….

My day to day identity is – as much as feasible – not public. Blogging is my choice, not that of my family (I poured my heart out in “When mummies blog and children cringe”), why making it easy for the world to identify my nearest and dearest?

Since launching this blog I have written two manuscripts, the latest titled: The Issue with Time – How to Kill a Soul. Writing, as opposed to watching TV, is the new yoga.

Follow my mini series titled:

Can a fiction book make you….?

Dialogue, glorious dialogue

Why some people are better than others

and others which I hope you will find of interest.

If you like short stories, I have recently launched a new blog, titled Barking at the wrong tree – short stories for the confused. Feel free to contribute and review!

All the best, OG&Bs

  4. Hi, there! Thanks for following my blog. As you are about glass jars, so am I about sheets of paper! (Specifically, sheets of paper collected over the years on which my nephew and his friends drew greetings, birthday cards to me, Christmas cards to me, and just their “art”–shame on me for my air quotes around the word “art,” of course it’s all art!). My gigantic computer table is already covered with papers taped to it (including a few stray poems by poets I like also), as well as a few stray rocks my nephew sold me from his “pretty rock” collection (a budding entrepreneur, you see), and now he and his friends are starting to design birthday boxes with drawings on them for my gifts–where am I going to put all this stuff???? (Hint: it won’t fit into glass jars less big than ten-gallon drums!).

    • Blast! I’m now compelled to browse E-bay until I spot that ten-gallon drums glass jar!
      Thanks for sharing your own likes. Isn’t it great that we can see so much in so little?
      All the best – hope to chat again soon!
