I don’t know if you remember, but I do, when the circus used to be in a tent. There would be a parade through town complete with Calliope, lions and elephants to the site where they pitched their tent. We always watched the tent being put up – exciting. Now the circus is held in auditoriums, mostly. Not nearly as interesting.
Well, today, I saw the real deal – a traveling circus in a tent. Not a big circus, but it sure looked like fun, providing wonderful entertainment for all the villagers in rural France.
Visited with my friend for a while, and read my book, did laundry. Nothing exciting, but just living in the moment. It was enough. That’s what is sometimes missing at home – the real stuff that is enough.
