    A Cog In The Machinery

    I know that, in the long run, I would not be able to handle the life of living on the road and every day feeling so uncertain......yet, I long for the circus. Not just any circus though. I don't want to be in the "traditional" circus, the ones with elephant on stool acts and such...

    I Want To Run Away And Join The Circus.

    I do. I REALLY do. I REALLY DO. I want to be somewhere I've never been. I want to explore. I want to bump into happy messes and crash into love. I want to dive headfirst in a pool of craziness and come out gasping for air and bask in the head rush it gives me. I'm tired of being...

    Me Too

    I have a friend who is a ringmaster for a circus. I think you might like it a little better than a normal circus Quirky. All of his "animals" are body contortionists. My favorite would be the six lions with pretty yarn manes. I would like to learn how to be a stilt...

    And I'd Be Twirling 100 Hula Hoops!

    I love the Cirque du Soleil. And Chinese acrobats. When I see the acrobats twirling in the air, it makes me feel free as if I were twirling with them. I also love to see all the amazing things that the human body can do. It makes me feel strong, even though I can't do those...
