“Break the glass, I thought to myself, because it is a symbolic gesture. Try to understand that within myself, things were breaking of much more importance than a glass, and I’m happy for that. Look to your own inner struggles and break this glass.

“Somebody has to go polish the stars,
They’re looking a little bit dull.
Somebody has to go polish the stars,

And your polishing jars,
Somebody has to go polish the stars.”
― Shel Silverstein, A Light in the Attic
