Beautiful bubbles

Rainbow bubbles —

Endlessly fascinating

As they can contain a whole world in their soapy spheres.

Floating up to the sky

They give us a new perspective on beauty

And remind us that life is as fragile and beautiful

As a child blowing bubbles.

Please indulge me as I wish my amazing daughter a wonderful 11th birthday!

Dig within. Within is the wellspring of Good; and it is always ready to bubble up, if you just dig. — Marcus Aurelius
