Cracking Glass Is A Good Thing!

I sold my first copy of my book and used my first twenty to purchase a bottle of baileys for a PARTy! Unfortunately, the full bottle slipped out of my hands and cracked into a million pieces on the sidewalk. I was pretty sad about this -- the first thing I purchased from the sale of my first book -- shattered into a million pieces. One of my friends, however, rejoiced and said, "Yeah, Greeks always break glass to mark celebration and Jewish weddings end with the breaking of glass as well. So -- breaking glass is a good thing -- a symbol of celebration. I guess it all comes down to perspective -- negative or positive -- you choose how you want to look at things.

  1. In the East Indian culture, if you break glass, especially in many pieces it is a sign of good luck coming your way. So Rajni, may you break more glass unintentionally, and get more luck.
