MurmelLiebe

|| English & deutschsprachige Version

For many years I did not have small magic marbles in my hands, until Minime eventually created MurmelMeister. I liked MurmelMeister from the very start and with the word, magic unfolded in my life. Since then, I increasingly take marbles as a part of my own magic and I enjoy giving it space to unfold it’s magic.

This is me. A sparkling molecule and tiny part of this world. Part of a wonderful energy source. It’s essential for me to go my own way and keep my eyes open – being open to all the wonderful little things that life creates. Enjoy life with passion and dedication. Recognize the magic of life. Feel and share energy.

For me, marbles embody this positive energy. And with a lot of heart and soul, I like to dedicate this space to my MurmelFreunde (marble friends), who also live their creativity and celebrate and worship the tiny little magical and wonderful pieces of happiness. I am very grateful to be allowed to share our MurmelLiebe (marble love) here. Thank you very much! This is your room! Room for marbles friends, marble art, marbles thoughts etc. This page should develop steadily, because as well as marbles keep on rollin’, anything else in in motion and changing as well.

MurmelLiebe

Viele Jahre hatte ich die kleinen zauberhaften Kügelchen nicht in den Händen, bis mein Minime irgendwann MurmelMeister erschuf. MurmelMeister gefiel mir von Beginn an, und mit dem Wort entfaltete sich die Magie in meinem Leben. Seither nehme ich Murmeln vermehrt als ein Stück meiner Magie wahr, und ich gebe dem Raum.

Das bin ich. Ein strahlend winzig kleiner Teil auf dieser Welt. Teil einer wundervollen Energie. Es ist essentiell für mich meinen Weg zu gehen und meine Augen geöffnet zu halten – offen sein für all’ die wundervollen Kleinigkeiten, die das Leben erschafft. Das Leben genießen mit Leidenschaft und Hingabe. Den Zauber des Lebens erkennen. Energie spüren und teilen.

Für mich verkörpern Murmeln diese Lebensenergie. Und mit viel Herz und Seele widme ich diesen Raum gern den MurmelFreunden, die ebenso ihre Kreativität leben und das winzig kleine magische und wundervolle runde Glück feiern und verehren. MurmelLiebe. Ich bin sehr dankbar, dass hier teilen zu dürfen. Dankeschön! Das ist euer Raum! Raum für MurmelFreunde, MurmelKunst, MurmelGedanken etc. Diese Seite soll sich stetig weiterentwickeln, denn wie auch Murmeln kullern wollen, so ist alles in Bewegung und Veränderung. || …with a smile to you. Yours, Sovely

|| August 13th, 2019 || I saw a sweet little video on Instagram of homemade marble games. (for the video on Instagram please go here) I loved what I saw, which is why I got in contact with the lady posting it, Mrs. Anke Hölzel. I learned that the marble games were done by children of the a German elementary school, the Wieratalschule in Langenleuba- Niederhain. It was part of an After-School-Project, for Children at the age of 6-10 years.

Anke told me that she got the idea on facebook, where something similar was posted. The children enjoyed being creative and put a lot of effort in this “doing yourself Project”. Afterwards it was time to play and of course, exchanging the final creations, in order to find out what works best, what is most fun – or to simply enjoy playing with marbles. I loved this idea of children of today, having the opportunity to be creative and doing crafts joyfully. I was told, that this project was a success for the small and the big human beings.

Thomas bought marbles due to great childhood memories. Marbles became alive again as part of a photo-session, when he was forced to stay inside due to bad weather. Right timing for marbles to unfold it’s magic again…

    Thomas,
    I picked up my love for marbles where I grew up in Nürnberg. Ja, Ich bin Fränkish. Ich bin seit 1974 in Amerika. Meine liebe für murmeln hat mich nie allein gelassen.
    The game may have become a distant memory to me, but, my collection of those magical orbs has grown to near unmanageable proportions.. Even though I have thousands of them neatly organized and displayed in my ” marble room” , they share space with marble games and displays. I’ve collected wooden and metal bubble gum machines that house marbles, a collection of roughly 50 floral frogs display 20 to 30 mibs each, and my collection of colorful vintage Chinese Checker boards made from cardboard,wood and metal make for great backdrops as well. All put together, it’s my own little heaven.
    I love your stories. I’m glad mibsters like you and I are sharing our love for marbles for all to experience. Marble on, my friend! Grüße auß Pennsylvania, USA.
