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.
