Have you ever been to a masquerade ball?
I haven’t but when I think of them, images that I have seen in movies come to mind.
A beautiful big room with a parquetry dance floor.
A spiral staircase leading down from the mezzanine level above where the host can look down upon their guests.
Huge, sparkling multi-tiered chandeliers.
The women dressed in stunning swishy ball gowns that glide across the floor as they dance and twirl and the men dressed handsomely in their tuxedos and polished shiny shoes.
And the part that lets you know it’s a masquerade ball? The masks of course!
Everyone is wearing a mask.
The masquerade ball is a metaphor for life.
