There's a movie or maybe a song or a novel where a character says that the most flattering light is the light that comes from birthday cake candles. How everyone looks beautiful when framed by cake light.
I would use a similar analogy to say that one of the most flattering situations to observe human interactions is the lobby of a high school theater after the performance. Last night was opening night for a group of students that I worked with through my day job. After the show, I walked out into a lobby teeming w/love, excitement, positive energy, relief, and so much joy, it was as if the entire room were filled with people holding cakes, and casting that beautiful, flattering glow in every direction.
I am so proud.
