Shards bring good luck

“Shards carry a lot of history, even though they are broken. After a storm I collect shards on the beach. Some of the patterns and colors are beautiful and very unusual. I try to imagine what the porcelain or glass looked like before it was destroyed and thrown on the beach by the ocean waves.”
