Wasn’t really lost in an old Martha Mears song as I strolled along Rizal Park’s Dancing Fountain the other night after a few pictorials at the national hero’s monument. Although the near-full moon and this place called Luneta, which is a word form for Lunette which is derived from Luna, may have contributed to this sentimental lunacy. But what was truly bewitching was the sound of Celine Dion’s voice from the loudspeaker doing the Titanic soundtrack as the fountain waters in shades of blue, green and purple shoot up in the air to the pace and rhythm of the music. When the song reaches its climactic part, the waters shoot up even higher and everything was beautiful. There was a sudden feeling of excitement. A magic in the air. Goose bumps. Cold shivers.
How did man came to discover that lights, color, music and water, when harmoniously orchestrated, can be so electrifying.
