I’ve been a marble maniac as long as I can remember–puries, steelies, cat’s eyes, shooters, those with print on the outside and figures on the inside. Some are as big as paperweights and others are as small as fresh green peas.
I keep them in jars, bowls, purses, pockets, in games like Chinese Checkers, in drawers and under tables. Most have been given to me by friends and family which makes them even more special.
Some are over one hundred years old and made of clay or glass. It’s fun to think about the children who used those so many years ago.
Oh, and one other thing. If I’m feeling stressed out or cranky, just rolling one around in the palm of my hand will calm me down. See if that works for you.
