I am honored and humbled in providing you with a link to the December 2012, Best Times cover story, Rich Maxwell, Leading young and old into a love of marbles.
I will save the punch line for a future announcement but, in brief, the 5-page article has inspired a new zeal for promoting the age-old pastime of playing marbles. I want to set up marble events, to teach kids how to play marbles. I have built indoor marble boards where kids and adults can shoot marbles without the marbles rolling all over the place. It is working well with seniors at retirement centers; and the very idea of re-connecting with the favorite childhood past time, has been very well received.
I hope we can do something together.
