The Circus Comes to Town

I’ll admit it I fit the cliche, as a kid I was always excited when the circus came to town. It was a special treat to go. I remember going a couple times as a kid and then one time when I was a bit older and my younger brother was the little guy. Then came the time when I worked in the building next to where the circus was performing and the smells of the circus weren’t quite so magical!

My favorite performers to this day remain the trapeez artists. I find them mezmorizing. What they do high up there in the air, is to me absolutely amazing!
