I've had to postpone my Bipolar Bubbling event due to a lack of supplies. If you read Bipolar Anger (Part 2), you'll see that I devised a Bipolar Bubbling Away Anger Event. I planned to develop a Transgression List, read each one aloud, and free myself of it by using kids' bubble wands to send them into the universe.
The problem is that I haven't had time to get the bubble wands I want. I Googled "bubble wands" and found this great place, Bubble Rock, that is about a 45 minute drive from my house. (And when I look at their wands, I'm thinking this bubbling activity would not only be great for me but for my mom and her friends at Casa Del Mar--that's not the real name but it will do.)
So, I plan on a field trip to Bubble Rock and I won't be able to take it until next week. I do want to thank Marie, Gay Bipolar Guy, and JayPeeFreely for their comments on Wednesday's blog. Marie, yes I do believe that some people shouldn't be forgiven. Staggo, I know that bubbles pop and float away...which I think is a good image for what I'd like my anger to do. JayPee, the idea of batting away anger at a batting cage is very appealing. Although I haven't mentioned it, I'm a terrific athlete and this could be quite fun!
But, here's the thing...now that I've written about anger for a few days...I'm kind of done with mine. However, I still think that Bipolar Bubbling would be great fun. And I'm thinking I might turn it into a more spiritual activity. And...I'm also thinking it would be fun to do it from the shore rather than the bluffs.
Thus, this is an event in progress. My first step is to go to Bubble Rock. My second is to do more research on bubbles. Also, I plan on finding a new book on forgiveness and think that perhaps that I may recite some prayers, poems, or passages on forgiveness (before or after bubbling).
If there are others who are interested in Bipolar Bubbling, we might consider synchronized bubbling (kind of like Esther Williams and swimming) or just write about our bipolar bubbling experiences.
I welcome any and all suggestions. As always (at least for the last few weeks), I'm offline all weekend. See you on Monday!
P.S. A fellow blogger at "depression introspection" (see blogroll because the link is doing weird stuff)is sliding into a depression. Just thought you might want to visit her blog and wish her good thoughts.
