Lessons From Bubbles

Image Credit: http://charlottesfancy.com/
Sometimes
a soft whisper
is more effective than
a lot of hot air.
Sometimes
slow and gentle
yields better results than
heedlessly fast.
And sometimes
despite your best efforts
the magic ends
too quickly
and you're left with
a sticky mess.
