The rationale for having a follow spot on a stage is to make it clear where the focal point is at any given point in time.
This device is used by folks from all walks of life.
Some might feel entitled with regard to basking in the light, when they only managed to get there due to a random sequence of events.
Having the humility and grace to stand by and let others take their turns in the spotlight is a sign of maturity.
It’s all about cycles, swings and roundabouts.
