from the back of the store as clear as a bell the sound of breaking glass grabs the attention of every shopper. What ear does not recognize that tinkling crashing chaotic audio when glass, so frail, impacts a hard surface and shatters? First thought near the accidental dropping of a faceted vase of iridescent beauty, were concerns that shards might have pierced their own fragile spaces. A quick check reveals all are well...collective sigh of relief. Back to business as usual.
