Life is a Circus Sometimes
Life can be a real circus sometimes.
I took the above photo in France last summer. We didn't have time to go to the cirque because it arrived the day we left, but I'm glad I took this photo of the sign we saw near our house. Le cirque. It sounds prettier and less crazy somehow. If I say "Life is a Circus" you understand that I mean life is a bit crazy right now. If I think, "La vie est un cirque" maybe I won't feel so rattled. It just sounds prettier and less frantic in French. Maybe because it takes me back to that lovely three week vacation in the south of France. I think I need to think in French more often. I think I need a nice European vacation.
