Michael Grab has mastered the art of stone balancing. He explains how he does it. “The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of “tripod” for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another. In the finer point balances, these clicks can be felt on a scale smaller than millimeters. Some point balances will give the illusion of weightlessness as the rocks look to be barely touching. Parallel to the physical element of finding tripods, the most fundamental non-physical element is harder to explain through words. In a nutshell, I am referring to meditation, or finding a zero point or silence within yourself. Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience. The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise.”

ロシアの郷土玩具として最も有名であろう「マトリョーシカ」は、日本からお土産として持ち帰えられた「入れ子細工」という民芸品をヒントに作られたそうだ。これは、箱根では古くから伝わる「足踏みろくろ」という技術で作られたもので、12個の卵が次々に出てくる卵形の「十二卵」や、七福神やだるまをモチーフにしたものなどがある。鎖国が解かれた日本に来日したロシア人が持ち帰ったものを、マーモントフ夫人という女性がロシア風にアレンジした「マトリョーシカ」を提案し、それがロシアの郷土玩具として定着したのだそうだ。モデルになったといわれる「七福神」は、現在もモスクワ近郊にある玩具博物館に展示されている。

「キャップ 800個で 20円分になります。それで人命を救うワクチンを買えます。協力してください。」
「ただし、キャップ 800個を収納するために、6000円のボックスを購入してください。集めたあとは、送料 800円を負担してください。合わせて6800円と多大な労力をかけてください。……そうすれば途上国に、ワクチンを14円分だけ送付できます」”
