A Golden Night with Golden Dragon

Didn't get home until late, last night, so I didn't get around to posting the following until this morning.

The boys and I - and thousands of other West Texans - packed most of the Chap Center last night for a performance by the
Golden Dragon Chinese Acrobats. They are among the 21st-century practitioners of an ancient tradition ... and the word "ancient" is not used lightly, as it may date back to Xia Dynasty, 4,000+ years ago.

If you have watched Cirque de Soleil - either live or on television - you have seen performances by entertainers steeped in the tradition of Chinese acrobats.

Thursday night's performance was nothing short of WONDERFUL !!! And, I would like to thank the folks at Midland College's
Phyllis & Bob Cowan Performing Arts Series for not only bringing Golden Dragon to town, but for opening the doors to thousands of appreciative fans ... free-of-charge.
