    The circus of life

    “You can get the monkey off your back, but the circus never leaves town,”  ~Anne Lamott, Grace (Eventually): Thoughts on Faith Some of my favorite funny quotes are circus metaphors. I always loved the political quote (which has Polish origins) that goes something like this: “Not my circus, not my monkeys.” Did you ever get the feeling that life is one big circus act? Sometimes it seems like we’re balancing beautifully on the high wire, while other times we’re stuck for hours in the clown car. Happy Friday — and have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
