Quick Post: Follow-up to Bubbles

One of the greatest perks of blogging is the wonderful people you meet on an almost daily basis. You really don’t know who or when a stranger will stop by for a visit and upon visitation leave a touch of their own catnip. That is exactly what happened this evening: I was led to Bubbles for a Cure. [Be sure to read the article, it is short and doesn’t take much time to read but is well worth it!]

Karen Ingalls is a retired nurse living in central Florida with her husband, Jim. (Um-m-m? I use to live in Florida and my husband is Jim. Already a connection. . .see what I mean?) She is a cancer surviver whose battle with ovarian cancer has been a difficult one but yet also a rewarding one. Meeting many wonderful people, learning a lot about herself, and having a deeper appreciation for life led her to write her book, Outshine, An Ovarian Cancer Memoir.

As Karen so graciously puts it on her blog. . .

“I encourage you to blow some bubbles in honor of someone you know who has or had cancer, say a prayer for a cure, and then support and contribute to cancer research.”


Inspiration from Bubbles?

Remember blowing bubbles. . .blowing bubbles as a kid or like a kid as you grew older? Summer wasn’t summer without the chance to blow bubbles. . .an experience unbeatable at the time, totally priceless.

Watching bubbles became somewhat invigorating as each floated effortlessly through the air disappating slowly ’til no more. BUT, wait! That was not all to the view: there was always a rainbow show!

With the performance of the tiny bubbles sometimes one bubble would stike another knocking it out of its way as it continued to soar onward and outward. Sometimes one bubble clinged to another bubble as though locked in time and space. Then, of course, there would always be this one bubble that became so big it appeared to have swallowed others whole! That was the one sought after the most as you looked toward the sky and blew and blew and blew.

Thanks again, to my friend, Don in Massachusetts, this memory was recently challenged by the largest bubble I have ever seen.

Have you ever seen one this BIG-G-G-G-G?

What are your memories of blowing bubbles?
