There's a microcosmos trapped in a soap bubble. At least, that’s the thing I believed in when I was a child. I always imagined little colourful creatures living in tiny colourful houses. And when the bubble burst, the little world disappeared creating an invisible web. It’s a pity the bubbles last only for a few minutes.
I loved blowing bubbles, I followed them when they were pushed by wind in different directions. I’ve recently found an interesting post on Housing a Forest which is not so much about chasing these ephemeral balls but building Rainbow Bubble Snakes out of them. The ingredients used are typical for bubble blowing but a special device must be built to create a form of a snake.
