I have been busy clearing up little things. All those tiny details that get lost in the shuffle of life. You know the things you shoulda put away..the things you shoulda sorted..the things you shoulda ordered..the gifts you should send..the addresses that you should update…the things you should organize. I finally made a list. I have decided there is not enough of me to go around. As soon as I got one thing off my desk two more things showed up to take its place. I fear I am losing the battle…and my desk is winning.
I found a spot for these treasures. They were 25 cents each in an antique shop..I had room in one of my marble jars. I am going to need a new marble jar soon. It is best to keep all your marbles together. So you don’t lose them.
I picked each and every one of these marbles out myself,turning them carefully in my hand to see if they conjured up a memory. Have you ever really FELT marbles..not so much in your hand..but in your memories?
..a treasure lost..several gained..playing for keeps ..Chinese Checkers all the marbles the same color..
Have you ever noticed the beauty in a marble? All the little air bubbles refract light..and how about those “thingys” inside you know the colored twisty/swirly things..are they pieces of glass..and what are they called?
Marbles can teach you stuff. Like the time I got out a very collectable Torpedo Canning Jar and filled it by dropping in marbles, until it cracked and broke. Stupid…why didn’t I place them gently inside..oh no I had to launch them like a fighter pilot launches his missiles. STUPID.
Oh well December is here now..there is no time to concentrate on little things anymore like the beauty in a marble..but I still have 24 shopping days.. I am in no big rush:)
