Sounds, and sweet airs that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again. And then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me, that when I waked
I cried to dream again."
Caliban, The Tempest

I adored it all – from HM The Queen saying "Good Evening Mr Bond" to Daniel Craig (you got seriously lucky with that Bond, Ma'am) to the Child Catcher scarily prowling the stadium; from the Arctic Monkey's cover of Come Together to the fireworks which left me breathless, it was all just incredible. And The Olympic Torch was unbelievable; so beautiful.
Before we've even run a race, picked up an oar or dipped a toe in the pool, we should all be very proud. Mr Danny Boyle and your team, congratulations, you've just written history. X
