The comparison is not exactly accidental.
This life we have created slips quickly and frequently into a sort of circus atmosphere. Lucky for me (and us) it’s generally the one-ring type and not a three ring event. Having someone operating in the same sometimes maddening circle as me is something I celebrate every day of the year. Yesterday it was particularly nice to add some presents, a few bites out, an amazing performance once again at Circus Flora, and a little Ted Drewes to wrap it all up. I even managed to talk briefly with my own Dad yesterday, despite our own equally busy schedules and demands. I’m happy to consider both of these fathers in my life the best of friends – and then I got really lucky and snagged another terrific dad through marriage in the process. Perhaps it’s more three ring after all.
Regardless, the show is incredible (go see it – you’ve got one more week) and my seat partners (even the wiggly one) were the best. Thank goodness for this dad, and this sweet family we’ve got going on.
