Bathe my soul in colours

Kahil Gibran ends that quote with  'let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow.' There is something joyful about colourful displays that lifts the spirit instantaneously. I suspect that's why I love VIVID so much.

 It's a joyous immersion into colour.

I was mesmerized by the Voxelscape,which is apparently more than 9000 globes that ebb and flow in colour and patterns. The VIVID district in Chatswood is well worth a visit this year.

There's plenty of interactive fun for the kids, with light up drums and many interactive walkways. Not to forget, of course, plenty of good food to eat. 

There are market stalls in the mall, and the mini film projected with a 3D pit reflection pool installation accompanying it.

This VIVID you really will be “Walking through darkness with thoughts full of colors".
(Prajakta Mhadnak)

These last few weeks, I've been loving my life - spending the nights meeting friends and roaming the streets. #LovingLifeLinky
