A contagious disease requires you to be put into quarantine for a whole month (don’t worry, you get well by the time you’re free to go!). How would you spend your time in isolation?

bubbles (1 of 3)

Sorry for the bad quality of the picture, but it suited the prompt too well. These kids are having a lot of fun inside the bubble, but they only want to prick the bright transparent globe and see how disappears in a harmless burst of soapy water. I guess I would be enchanted like them in my bubble at first, with plenty of time to sleep, relax. Time to read and write.  Maybe  give a boost to a book I have in project. I would have time to concentrate. There would be no distractions. No need to work and no other responsibilities. Luxuries I don’t have in my daily life. Bright, dazzling colours, deformed reality, with attractive surreal forms. But soon I would feel an irresistible need to take a needle and prick the bubble. A need to escape and interact with real people. And be able to see, and talk to, and touch my loved ones. This would be the best part of the isolation. Its end.

      Thank you. I took it some days ago. There was a street performer making giants bubbles and lots of kids playing around him.
