bubbles

isabelle has recently learned how to blow soap bubbles inside other soap bubbles, with the help of a straw and a soapy plate. i know how to do that too. layers on layers of soap fantasy, nearly touching, sometimes meeting and collapsing, rainbow-coloured and offering their beautiful distorted reflections of reality. i certainly know how to do that. what i don't know how to do is stop my bubbles from bursting. and once they burst, i don't know how to stop tears from dropping onto the empty soapy plate.
