It was actually my birthday last week …
So to celebrate I bought us circus tickets (to me, from me). We went the night before last, and wow, were we entertained! I refuse to go to any circus that has animal acts, but I’m quite okay with watching humans jump through hoops lol. Last year we went to the Australian Circus Spectacular when they were on our shores and that was such an amazing experience. It was the first circus I’d been to since I was a child and it was the first non-animal circus show I’d seen. And the Great Moscow Circus didn’t disappoint either! Remarkable show. Kudos to them.
I loved the way the people thrive off of the audience and their enthusiasm for their performance shines through (even in the really scary acts where I had my eyes covered with my hands and was watching through my fingers lol). I could barely watch the contortionist as I was scared it would give me nightmares!
And so my forties have begun, not with a bang or a whimper, but with a circus … 😉
