Wednesday Wish (82); Blow Bubbles


Whatever it is,
it’s not as important
or as heavy
as it seems.
It just wants you
to think that,
so you won’t remember
to set it free,
so you won’t remember
to replace it with
Bubbles—
and a day, week, life 
of childlike
joy.

My current favorite place to blow bubbles is on an airplane. What about you? Where is your current favorite place? What about in an important meeting? Or in a fancy office building? Or in an elevator? Where do you wish you had the nerve to blow bubbles and where might your joy feel the grandest if you did? 

I dare you this week,
to honor your childlike spirit. 
We all have it. 
It's just the few who honor it, 
that enjoy life for the rest of us.

  1. When I retired from my university teaching job - the first time - my son's girlfriend gave me a plastic machine that made bubbles as a gift. It provided instant smiles from anyone who saw that thing cranking those big bubbles out in a steady stream. Instant. Thanks for the reminder. I need to get the bubblemaker out of the closet and back making smiles. Kind of makes me smile just to think about getting it out!
