Summary: How do we spend our time on the planet' Do we fill it with mindless activity or do we consider it a precious gift' In 1,000 Marbles, author Jeff Davis shares a modern parable about discovering and appreciating life's finite nature. At age 55, a man realizes his life expectancy is about 75 years of age and calculates that he has about 1,000 Saturdays left to enjoy. He buys a thousand marbles and marks the passing of each Saturday by removing one marble from a jar. When he removes the last marble on his 75th birthday, he considers each subsequent weekend to be bonus time.And that's only the introduction to this incredible, inspirational list book. 1,000 Marbles offers a thousand thought-provoking ideas for what to do on your Saturdays. Load the family into the car and take a drive into the country. It's always better if you try to get lost on such a trip! Go fishing. Remember, a bad day of fishing beats a good day of working, anytime. Have you ever taken a ride in a hot-air balloon' I haven't yet, but I plan to spend a marble doing just that one day. On a warm summer day, I like to spread a blanket on the ground and take a nap. There's. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0740715534
