…In Berkeley, California, USA, in the 1960s, a remarkable woman appeared. At first everybody knew her as ‘the bubble lady,’ because she could usually be found blowing soap bubbles on Telegraph Avenue, adding an evanescent cheer to the lives of any who passed her way. She dressed in black, and she was only one of the many charming ‘characters’ that the 60s produced in Berkeley, which at that time was the stomping ground of left-over Beatniks and Flower Children alike.
