This is one of those quotes that turns on the waterworks (a word that seems a good match for fireworks). Read the story behind this man’s passion:
I often use the word “joy” when describing fireworks.
It is a considered word, deliberate in choice. Not just amusement, entertainment, or astonishment, but joy.
Our art makes us all into children again for awhile. We become one in our experience for the moment, lost in the sound and color and light.
