Our theme for 2013 is called "The Human Race". This year, we are using a classic sporting tradition as an analogy for LIFE'S RACE. The theme is based on the principles of "self belief" and ultimately "forging one's own destiny".
So the plot thickens, as they mentioned they are using a classic sporting tradition as an analogy for life's race. So what can we expect?
The music and images in the beginning of the trailer definitely give of an Olympic feel to it, but then the horse race and the term 'hold tight to the reins' indicate a horse race, a sporting tradition that is historically identified with wealth and social position.
So will we be seeing highly stylised headpieces, top hats and cravats fashioned after those worn by the upper class, wealthy, and socially ambitious, as seen at the Royal Ascot?
Or will it be the the silk colours and symbols of the jockeys, whips, baggy pants, boots and matching helmets, like us racing in a quest to be celebrated by those in high society?
Time will tell...your guess is as good as mine, unless one of you 'in the know' fill me in. Until then...
