Visual and sound gravity

Mark Helprin described "color gravity" with much detail in his book, Winter's Tale, through the eyes and mind of Pearly Soames.

I came close to that sort of gravity when we watched WICKED, the untold story of the witches of Oz, last March 8. It was my first time to watch a Broadway musical, and every moment of it was magical.

It was also fitting that the day ended with a pyromusical show at Mall of Asia. We were lucky to catch the delegation from China, last year's finalist in the Philippine International PyroMusical Competition. Their routine was solid -- just wave after wave of exploding colors timed to a collection of popular music.

Truly a celebration of visuals and sounds.
