AMAZING DOG TRIO - Thoughts, Reflections, and Ideas On, or Relating To, AMAZING DOG TRIO
THE ADULT, THE ARTIST
AND THE CIRCUS
At the very thought of "circus"
a swarm of long-imprisoned desires breaks jail.
Armed with beauty and demanding justice
and everywhere threatening us with curiosity
and spring and childhood,
this mob of forgotten wishes
begins to storm the supposedly impregnable fortifications of our present.
The Sacred Circle in
the Art of
John August Swanson
Circus performers can encourage us to confront
our most deeply felt anxieties and inhibitions:
our fears of being laughed at, of taking risks,
and trying new things.
