Sky: The Musical – Act 1: Sky

The Story
The sky towers above – seemingly endless, but is it?

The sky is a place for imagination – imagining the swift flight of a bird – imagining  floating like a butterfly – imagining soaring like an eagle – imagining being on a plane that takes you to an exotic land.

The sky is a place for dreams – the dreams to fly – the dreams to go beyond – the dreams of a future love we don’t yet know – the dreams of the love we have – the dreams of a love that remains – the dreams serving as memories of a loved one who is gone.

The sky – a place for contemplation – wondering about what to do – wondering what will be – wondering what has been.

The sky as a metaphor – a smoke – whether haunting or hopeful, a sign of brightness and darkness – for calm and storm – a blanket – infinity.

The sky is a place for everyday things – a place that never seems the same – the place that is the steadiness of the sun, the moon, the clouds, and the stars.

Welcome to Sky: The Musical.

Together we can face any challenges as deep as the ocean and as high as the sky. (Sonia Gandhi)

The sky is an infinite movie to me. I never get tired of looking at what’s happening up there. (K. D. Lang)

The sky is the daily bread of the eyes. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Excuse me while I kiss the sky. (Jimi Hendrix)

The way of fortune is like the Milky Way in the sky; which is a number of small stars, not seen asunder, but giving light together: so it is a number of little and scarce discerned virtues, or rather faculties and customs, that make men fortunate. (Francis Bacon)

Production Note
To prevent browsers crashing from loading too many videos, please 1) include the song title and artist in your text, and 2) paste the URL as part of your last line (not a new line). The latter will provide a link, thus not embed the actual video … but I don’t mind unembedding, so apologies are not necessary.
