Well it was an exciting Friday. I tried to give you all an easy one. While most of you got that I was in Kings Cross, beginning with Mr. Echo, I was looking for something more specific. In fact, I even told you exactly where I was and only Daisy was that specific.
Yes, can you imagine?! Daisy was finally correct! She said:
For once, I know EXACTLY where you are! You are at Platform 9 3/4. Right?
Victor Tabbycat was the most thorough:
King’s Cross Station, London, platform 9 3/4. Are you waiting for the Hogwarts Express? I’d LOVE to ride that train! Or derail a model of it. Either would be fun!
I do not think you could get much more specific than that. Most of you were guessing too general. Now for all those cats who did not read Harry Potter, you may want to look at the picture again as there is a small hint. Find my head and then count seven rows of bricks up and you will find it.
I danced in the morning when the world was begun
And I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun,
And I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth,
At Bethlehem I had my birth.
Dance, then wherever you may be,
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he,
And I’ll lead you all, wherever you may be,
And I’ll lead you all in the Dance, said he….
At the conclusion of the first part of every Christmas Revels, the chorus and audience join in a serpentine song and dance, based on Sidney Carter’s song, “Lord of the Dance,” an adaptation of the Shaker song, “‘Tis a Gift To Be Simple.”
The song and dance is a brief experience of shared celebration and is, for many, the community highpoint of the show.
