blogtography 2016 edition

Beyond my circus life, I’m not so sure about this year. 2016 was awfully harsh and stormy and blustery and a little bit dark…with even darker dark looming up ahead. But under The Big Top, 2016 was a pretty good year and a good time with a lot of love, light, laughter and hope.

Add this to the No Matter How Old And Independent Your Children Are…or maybe think they are….They Will Still Need You files.

And for a moment, I do reflect a little on the fact that there is no control once you are gone who tells your story.

Excuse me people but lately I am having some serious mad love for my neighborhood.

I kind of like science, Mom. I like it a lot.

Ah, Harry…you need a shave, my friend.

Give me a moment. Give all of us a moment.

I hope she will some day recall this once upon a December day and smile. I know that I will.
