For a few years, I hung around with a circus of sorts.
The Flying Karamazov Brothers.
My boyfriend, at the time, was the roadie-juggler stand in-Karamazov cousin and was on the road with them for years.
I was lucky enough to be part of this world and even went on the road with them for a bit.
They were jugglers, primarily but in their 'off' time they did a travelling show which included clowns, fire eaters, gymnasts, sword swallower's, trapeze artists and many more forms of circus performers.
Wednesday night on PBS they have begun a series all about the circus (funny enough called "Circus") and it's brought back some great memories of these short, but incredible times.
I still juggle once and a while and always dream of being a trapeze artist or a tight rope walker.
I did some circus vaulting on horses as a kid but never big enough to work the Big Top.
This show has left me feeling nostalgic after watching the first part of this series, so I thought I'd post this beautiful song in honor of the circus world.
Have a great weekend all...go make some popcorn and juggle a few balls around!!
