This is a quote about the unpredictability of Life!

     I was asked to choose a quote from my first novel, A Brownstone in Brooklyn, to reflect on the unpredictable nature of life. How things are never the same and human beings have to adjust to life's changing events.

A Brownstone in Brooklyn is about growing up in the turbulent sixties, one of the most event filled decades in Black-American history.
A Brownstone in Brooklyn chronciles the life-altering events that shape the future of Andy Michael Pilgrim, a young man growing up in the turbulent sixties. This is a quote from Sister Love, a character sitting on the B-52 bus riding to her job at the A&S Department Store in downtown Brookyn. She's watching some young kids playing in the the water squirting from a fire hydrant.
What do you think? What is your reaction to this quote?
"The most special times in a person's life are not meant to last forever. They're like bubbles from a plastic ring dipped into a soapy solution. The soap bubbles rise, with the sun flashing brillant colors, then bursts into a showery memory mist."
---Julius Thompson, A Brownstone in Brooklyn
