Bubbles

The children, of course, were enchanted by the bubbles. Call me Peter Pan; so was I. Just because we are physically bound by gravity doesn’t mean our spirits must be made slaves to it.

My descent into bubble-headedness alarms even me. Although it may be an ascent.

The latest example came at last Thursday’s Douglas Social. People were eating, drinking, kibitzing and honoring Joe, our retiring postmaster. It being Douglas, zany and vivid things went on in the sunshine.

Lucia Earle—my favorite South African artist born in the Dragon Mountains—joined two girls dressed in face paint and Ox-Bow Art School costumes, one of whom skated gracefully up and down Center Street.

A small girl performed ballet on a shaded sidewalk, Century 21 gave out sunflower-colored Frisbees and Button Gallery perched a bubble machine on the edge of its sculpture courtyard.
