LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #90 – Bow

Once the show is over, the audience usually claps and the performers bow. This ritual is the end of the end. The audience thanks the performers with their ovation. The performers receive this gratitude with their bow, which is showing their humbleness to the audience. Both sides mutually recognize their importance in making the event possible. A little ritual in which we give recognition and gratitude for what was can be a good way of closing. Thanks to all the people that have inspired me and continue to inspire me. Thanks to all the people that have read and continue to read. Thanks to all the people who have responded to this series in a variety of ways. Thanks for the gift of existence and experience. Life is a live art. Let’s continue!
