Summer Daily 5: Now, think of the happiest things. It's the same as having wings.

I felt the magic
flying over London's sky...
Neverland exists.

Today I went to San Francisco with my SIL and MIL to watch an amazing theatrical performance of Peter Pan. It was a performance I've never experienced before, an amazing treat to all your senses. Here's a good quote from their website:
"What we have aimed for is a fusing of some very different theatre styles. This is still a theatre production. We have live actors to tell the story and we also have puppetry of a charming and surreal style, acrobatics, singing and sword fighting. What we also have is this other very special element. We take the audience up in the air and give them the feeling that they're soaring through the sky with these very familiar characters. It's a lovely feeling."

Sure I can say I felt like a kid again, but I couldn't help but imagine how amazing this performance would have been to a kid. There were a lot of them in the audience and I couldn't help but notice their eyes sparkle with the belief of the magic and even the fear of the pirates and especially the scary crocodile.

To say the least, lots of inspiration from this show...let's see where I'll take it.
