Tar Bubbles in Eden, NY
Photo by Amy LV
It's a small thing, sitting on the curb and popping tar bubbles just for the joy of sound and the soft feel of warm black on your fingertips. As a young girl, I would sit by our mailbox and play with the bubbles of tar for leisurely stretches of time. Now my children do this, and I still smile with the car windows open when I drive through warm tar on a hot summer day. SNAP! SNAP! SNAP! It's great.
Students - what things do you do, little things, things that don't earn you a ribbon or a championship, things that don't accomplish anything spectacular...what do you do for plain old enjoyment? These are good possible writing topics, what you do when you simply spend time with yourself, loving the world in little ways.
