Growing up on five acres in Texas,
I never imagined the day.
When I would find myself,
In a huge city far away.
Upon the first breathtaking view,
In shock, my jaw dropped.
The breath was stolen from my chest,
And the beats quickened within my heart.
There was no end to the skyline,
The world was flat, building to building.
Such an incredible sight to see,
So exciting and thrilling!
Part of me felt fearful reservations,
Intimidated by the vastness all around.
And this was simply upon approach,
Adventures in the city itself would eventually abound.
Light pouring through the fog.
Across a floral ceiling tall…
Soft water sprays.
Sounds of the tropical wild,
People still flooding in.
Laughter and silent stares.
Le Reve’s about to begin…
I saw Le Reve (The Dream) this weekend. One of Vegas’ amazing shows. Not lacking in stimuli by any means- great for the stimuli junkie I am! I loved it. It was filled with ridiculously incredible acrobatics, magic, illusion, music- even a bit of comedy. The artistry was mesmerizing… captivating. I felt like I had really entered “a Dream”. I didn’t want to wake up either! I’m grateful I had the opportunity to experience it!
