paying-for-inspiration-imagination



Here's a post I did in the plane last week on the way back from Vegas:

I managed to catch 3 shows, KA CDS, the Lion King & Zumanity CDS. The Lion King was really amazing, the vocals and music were mind-blowing, a lot of animal props were used. Its amazing how powerful story telling is as a communication medium even in the working world.

The KA show involved a lot of gravity defying performances, it was really surreal. Zumanity was the last show, I am not quite sure how to describe it, it was a mix of cabaret and acrobatics.


Its amazing how much shows such as these are so popular and that reflects in the premium paid for their prices, it seems that people are will to pay to see imagination, art, laugh, be inspired and forget themselves, for an hour or so. All these things should be part of our daily life everyday. The stress and the negative 'programming' daily robs us of all this.

Ever seen an interview with the Dalai Lama, a humble man who wears a robe, who spreads messages of peace and compassion, the heartfulness of his laughter, his sense of humor, his humility, his simplicity, compassion and genuine concern for his fellow humans being and the planet. Don't go much further, go to a kindergarten, and see how a child plays and laughs naturally, see the imagination that happens spontaneously.
