To Be Lit Again

This is the cauldron that was lit in front of the CN Tower during the PanAm Games which ended here last Sunday. It will be lit again on August 7 when the ParaPanAm Games begin. It was designed by the creative team of Cirque du Soleil and manufactured in Hamilton Ontario with each panel on the pinecone representing one of the sports involved in the games. It was impossible to take a pic without someone posing in front of it!

Love it. A brightly colored pine cone. Who thinks of things like this? When people are in your scene, cheer and find a way to make the most of their presence.
