One of my Favorite Places in the World

The Wynn Casino in Las Vegas has a secret bar called the North Show Terrace which overlooks this waterfall. Every hour there is a surreal show such as a giant frog singing or a big balloon head with a films projected on it. I first discovered this place with my mom and then again with my friend Brechin when we were here an Americans for the Arts conference about 5 years ago.

I often think about this place as a peaceful oasis in the middle of chaos. Today it has already proven special as I heard from my friend Dave via text while sitting here and also got the sad news about the passing of Whitney Houston via email.

Special places are where you can take in the good and the bad while still feeling nestled in warmth and comfort.
