“I love it; oh my goodness, I couldn’t decide which one was the best. I saw one, and that was my favorite, and then the next one was even better, and I was so excited, I just couldn’t choose. They were so magnificent, and they talked to my heart, I could feel it. It was just very moving; very special.”
“The whole thing was just like one big, beautiful wave, and it just caught me. It was very special. I appreciate the art.”
“Everybody [in the performance] was talking about [compassion], that’s the world I live in, and I could feel it coming through the art when they were dancing. I could feel it. And the way they moved I could feel it, the way they sang—when they sang they were talking to me, and I could feel it, it moved me. Very special.”
“It was talking to me. If I have to put it in words, it would be really hard. But I could feel it, more than I could put it into words. It was very, very touching. I feel like I’m walking on the air now—I feel lighter.”
