I cherish the times in my life when I am transported back to my childhood. Feeling as though I could burst at any moment! I become overwhelmed with excitement; literally jumping up and down, while grinning from ear to ear. Although I consider myself to be a generally happy person, I don’t feel like this nearly enough. That was until the circus came to town! I LOVE all things Cirque du Soleil and after seeing one performance I was hooked!
A few nights ago I ventured again to the yellow and blue Cirque du Soleil tent; a magical place where anything is possible and the world is exactly how it should be. As we drove though Irvine we could see the big top glowing in the distance and the butterflies began to build.
Within the first 10 minutes my eyes began to fill with tears and I quickly forgot I was in Orange County, let alone this world. Throughout the the show I laughed, screamed and cheered until my hands hurt from clapping. I could feel the show coming to a close and I silently wished it would never end. These are the rare moments when my mind isn’t running a thousand miles an hour and I’m totally in the moment. Nothing else matters and I am content to just sit back and watch life unfold.
After my latest trip to the circus I am reminded that the beauty in life comes from the moments that consume, inspire and leave your heart smiling.
No photography was allowed during the show but I took a few photos with my iPhone and processed them with the RetroCamera app!
