Obviously there is something up with the blue here. Also I am reminded of my Zazen sifu and his talk of letting the thoughts pass by like clouds on the wind. But my mind inexorably pushes forth something else: marbles. It's the eyes; don't they appear to be perfectly marbelesque?!

The marbles I used tot play with as kid, the colored glass, intriguing shapes inside them, varying sizes, transparent or eyeball white or pitch black – oh what a marvelous toy they made. Memories of dragging around that heavy, heavy mom-made-sack, always out for more. Really way too young to have an understanding of suicidal Wall Street day-traders who just lost a ton of other peoples' marbles, and yet... (why did I even know such things as day-traders existed, or Wall Street for that matter – must be I grew up in the eighties).

Also, women scorned can go pack their bags because really, hell has no fury like a kid that just lost his marbles (no pun intended). Like a pink haired granny at the slot-machines in Vegas, the kid will play and play and play, past dark, past dinner, past bedtime – the marbles must be won back.

Actually, just the other day I spotted some kids playing with marbles, which I enjoyed, seeing as how they also all have i-pads and what not. Viva the good old marble! But man, have times changed. Some of the present day marbles were the size of a tennis ball, I kid you not. How do you get your little fingers to shoot those canon balls? I was so intrigued that I wanted to join in and find out. But then I realized my fingers aren't little anymore, so asking them would make no sense, at all.

This made me kinda blue.
