2017—Jesus Christ Superstar

In the rock-opera Jesus Christ Superstar, King Herod sings: “So, you are the Christ, you’re the great Jesus Christ. Prove to me that you’re no fool; walk across my swimming pool.”  I love those lyrics.  They are my favorite words from that opera.  These lyrics came to my mind one steamy afternoon in Puerta Jimenez, Costa Rica when I saw this Jesus Christ Lizard perched on a log by a river.  The lizard is so named because it can run across water great distances.  He didn’t do any walking on water while I watched him.  Too bad.
