Don’t take the shrimp to the opera baby.

Yes! That is what they told me.

It was like a scene out of Terminator meets Total recall with a Bill Murray overtone. (My apologies Bill!).

Strangely formed creatures said hello, bankers wore sequined t-shirts with spiraling hairdos and cluster-diamond rings.

We travel to see, be, depart and feel free.

Ok..perhaps you don’t share the trend… that’s, almost, OK.

It was not a Greek God but a servant of one, who came carrying the gift.

We had a chat, a cup of tea, a croissant, and then talked about his relatives.

They were all very well, wealthy, friendly, and happy to offer hospitality it seems.

I think I will accept the invitation to go and stay in one of their chalets in Aspen or Telluride.

Decided to roll.

Not with the punches, but the smiling high-fives of approval and salute, congratulation and appreciation.

Join us in the salute that reaches, the toast that teaches.

Clearing the alleyway was hard, but it led to being able to breathe fresh air and to relax with a glass of fresh lemonade.

To be fair, we had help, not only our team but also their team, everybody lent full support.

We were cheered on, bodily carried above the crowd and asked for our stories, and how we felt about it all.

There were smiling dignitaries. They told us we were the princes and princesses, we had thought they were!

We won the poll and we won the roll.

Oversold but just in time, we all loped along under a biscuit-candy sun.

The group, the crowd and me, became “we”.

Together, primed and buoyant, we sauntered down to the lake of fires.

Cool and refreshed. Tasty by consuming life-long similarities and warm differences. Triumph folks, sheer success!
