As I was walking down a hallway at work the other day, I passed an open door and glanced inside. The door opened to one of the communication/recording control areas, and because the room was dark, the steps up to the platform were outlined with rope lights. It was amazing how, in that brief moment, I was transported from that hallway to a hushed, expectant theater. I could feel the excitement in the air as the audience waited for the show to begin. And just as quickly as it came, the feeling passed, and I was back in the hallway, heading on my way.
I walked on, pondering how powerful certain sights, sounds, and smells can be.
