The Simplicity of a Clown’s Life / #next364 #rednose

I’m spending the weekend performing my solo clown show at the Waseca Count Fair.  I am savoring the clown’s life, and realizing  how much I miss being on-the-road.

Being on stage and hearing people laugh is making the concerns of my life vanish.  No grant deadlines; no book deadlines; no plays to write, or struggle to produce; just me on stage in a rubber nose.

I think the 25-years that Rosie and I spent clowning on-the-road, while raising our family were our most carefree.
