I Love Marbles!
I love large collections of marbles. There is a shop on Broughton Street with a galvanized pail full of marbles. I go in there just so I can sink my hands into the pail. Delicious happiness!
Every time I feel those cool little balls between my fingers the whole world turns into a bright and hopeful place… like the film Amelie… sometimes I even hear the soundtrack.
I’ve decided that in this year of grace, I’d like to surround myself with more of the little things and I have decided to start my own collection of marbles.
I’ve never actually owned any more than a few marbles in my life – so this is a little exciting. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. I’m hoping to add marbles from all my favorite places in the world. I feel an actual trip to Paris is in order!!!
What are your favorite little things?
