    Robin's Smile

    I was at the Exploratorium (1997?) with my children when my son, who was probably 7 years old at the time, started playing with bubbles from a large bubble dish. There was a girl about his age who reached for the bubble wand about the same time as he did. I was impressed at how the two children interacted, sharing the bubble wand, rather than grabbing it away from each other. Then they took turns waving the wand to produce the long strings of huge bubbles. They were truly having fun together. For some reason, I looked up and saw a man, with a very loving smile, watching the
    children play. I knew at once it was Robin Williams. It was then that I realized that the girl my son was playing with was Robin Williams' daughter, Zelda. I looked at him in acknowledgment, and he returned my glance. I was taken by the fact that both of us were enjoying our children playing together. It was a magical moment I will never forget.
