In London, our group meandered over to the Eye while watching the Thames River and the street performers entertaining crowds of people. One was a Pied Piper who made gigantic bubbles for the children to run after and catch. It worked on this kid, too, for I was enthralled with the colors and size of the wobbling bubble floating like some alien space ship.
I stood and stared at it. It rolled in the air, and the crowds disappeared and the London afternoon was quiet for one brief moment. Then, pop!
