simple / pleasure


T- Nikon / L - Nikon

...
Lips are pursed,
A gentle breath
Gives birth
To another
Gem of wonder -

A Bubble,
A Child’s rainbow globe;
Tenuous, momentary,
But a dream
Of beautiful fragility
That captivates
A sense of wonder.

-Paul Holmes

I switched the order of our photos today because it's the way it occurred.
I came home yesterday and it looked like a child had been at my house. Taylor and her friend apparently had some childhood fun blowing bubbles. / I couldn't help picking up that little yellow pipe myself and blowing some. We're never really too old to enjoy this simple pleasure are we? I hope you let the child in you come out to play this holiday weekend. Happy 4th to all.

I don't think you're ever too old to enjoy blowing some bubbles!

I do love blowing bubbles. Your pictures reminded me of something I love. The Easter Sloane was three I bought her this little singing bird for her Easter basket. It was just a little gimicky toy. You fill it with water and blow in it and it bubbles and burbles and whistles. I adore it! I love it so much that I swiped it from my own child's basket (before she got it) when I couldn't get another one. Bad, aren't I?
