Lessons From Bubbles

a soft whisper
is more effective than
a lot of hot air.
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.

Blowing bubbles is a good analogy for life in general. I'll try to keep that in mind. Thanks!
