I used to love bubbles as a kid. Every Christmas we would have one of those little cylinders with the ring cap that you blew your bubble through, or waved it through the air and it would leave a trail of them. Somehow using washing up liquid when it ran out was never the same.
At a Big Weekend celebration when we were on the boat, there were huge bubbles for kids to play in, trying to keep upright as they rolled around on an air cushion.
The pictures below are mine.
It made me realise how much skill was involved in ‘Gladiators’ and their Atlasspheres challenge.
But here’s a thought for Firework Night:
What if someone could invent a ‘firework’ that dispensed bubbles rather than sparks?
Not much good in the dark perhaps, but pretty nonetheless, and silent!
Now we have ‘bubbles’ of a different kind, people who are allowed to mingle in their own select group, be it a classroom, office, or just a couple of households with one occupant who have got together trying to hold on to their sanity and some kind of normalcy.
