Falling In Love With Love

These photos don't begin to express the magic of LOVE, the newest Cirque du Soleil show at the Mirage in Vegas. From the time it starts until it ends it is non-stop images: Some exciting such as "Revolution", others funny such as Blackbird, and most of the time just beautiful as when you get swept away with "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds".
Throughout the show, the audience is involved at several points from pulling a curtain to cover the audience to the end number where you are on your feet singing "All You Need Is Love".
When you combine those images with Beatles music and the story of the history of their music, the show becomes a very personal experience, particularly for those of a certain age who can mark the moments of their lives with a Beatles song.
I will keep the instructions simple: If you are going to Vegas, beg, borrow, steal, sell the first born, but go see LOVE.

I want that filagree VW. Wasn't it just the coolest?

It was great, but I want one of those bungie swinging things and the body that lets you use it. ;-)

My favorite mechanical thing was the puppet machine of dancing rain boots.

We really do have to drag everyone back. There was just too much to see the first time.

Glad too see everyone made it back safely. Take care of your cold.

God Bless.
