On a recent trip to Los Angeles, I arranged a 24 hour stop over in Las Vegas to see Cirque du Soleil shows in the flesh. The story of O, an extravaganza of earth, water and fire was beyond imagination.
Have you ever been in a situation where the utterance of mere words were feeble to express the stirring of inspiration welling up inside? Perhaps that is why the soul thinks in pictures, because words alone can’t possibly contain such wonder and beauty.
Let the show begin. The obligatory clowns goof it up with the audience pre show then the huge red curtain pulls up and way followed closely by a read silk curtain that pulls back to reveal the “stage floor”, an aqua marine blue shimmering pool.
Immediately in unison synchro swimmers emerge with grace and precision to celebrate the best of human expression. They close and dive into the pool and disappear without a trace. The first 5 minutes of a 2 hour show. What an inspiritus experience. What a way to start each day. A great reminder of what we are all capable of in our own way. That is, of course, to do what we love and inspire others in our witness
