Stay a Moment and Pop Some TarBubbles!

Go back…go back in time when you were wearing overalls and sitting on a curb staring down at the small leftover pools of tar that would form bubbles in the summer sun. Sometimes fishing and playing tag were not what you needed – sometimes just sitting on the curb and looking for bubbles to poke at was what the day called for.

As you pressed your finger into the tar your fingerprint left a fossil, no… a time capsule- better – preserving a memory of a small moment in time from another age when children could wander alone and sit on a curb without constant apprehension of abduction.

All of the tar was interesting, whether it be as simple as a formless warm puddle of tar that felt good or a step up to the really cool tar bubbles that would be a little bit dry and even crispy and crack when you pressed on them. But the winners were those rare ones that held warm or even hot water that would surprise you when the water squirted out and sometimes gave you a minor shot to the face.

Those times of quiet absorption were when ideas and dreams would spark and set fire to an imagination filled with castles and Indians, mountains and lost treasure that would lead the daily charge of activity with your lifelong friends.

Today, this blog named Tar Bubbles is created to deliver the results of this quiet absorption for you and when you press upon each bubble (or blog entry) they will sometimes crack, sometimes leave an impression, sometimes squirt you in the eye but all are written to offer value in their own manner and always with eagerness and passion.

Crouch down or have a seat on the curb and look at the bubbles and go ahead…press one and see what you get.

Trump on Abortion – Electing a CEO

Trump on Abortion – We are Electing a CEO I am watching the Washington insiders spin like tops over the idea of Trump being the Republican nominee.  The avowed conservatives I admire like those who participated in the recent National Review attack piece including Glenn Beck, Bozell, Boaz, etc. are caught up on the message rather than the meaning, the points rather…

Welfare State

United Welfare State of Felines

The Welfare State and the Pecking Order I witness social interactions between people each day and as most am fascinated by the natural interplay of cultural basis in those dealings.  It is amazing to witness Red Sox and Yankees fans living together without any routine bloodshed.  If society has managed to break that cycle of hate and evolve to a…

Liberal Bias in Media and Entertainment

Liberal Bias in Media and Entertainment – This is biased. Don’t you think everything you read or listen to should have a disclaimer that states whether or not it is biased?  I mean why not?  There are always warnings for food products, medicine and even video games warning what the product contains or might do.  For example: Zero Transfat, MSG,…

Donald Trump and the Self Destructive Republican National Committee – At last Jeb Bush is out and with a little luck the RNC will get the heck out of the way of the voter’s will. This idea of learning from history is myopic if we only selectively learn from a kernel of the past. Rather than the misapplication of the…
