I've never been to the circus before; it equal parts desolate and magical. I'm hard-pressed to define what it was about it I found so fascinating. I think it was because it felt like stepping into a different world. Or a different time. Slower paced, more vaudevillian . . . honestly, I don't know. But I loved it.
On the way home I considered joining up. I think James and Edie and I could work up some sort of family high-wire act.
