Grateful for clown noses.

I wrote a holiday inspired blog and meant to post it just between Christmas/Hanukkah and New Years Eve. That time came and went, and now I'm sitting here in February looking at the draft. But I guess it's never too late to be grateful, especially in public, right?

As this year begins and I reflect back the past two years of clown nosed adventure I cannot help but feel immensely grateful. Grateful for:
The opportunity to travel the world using circus as a way to give back to the communities we visit;
The many folks who have housed us, and otherwise taken care of us, on our journey;
 The inspiring community leaders we have met on our tours, and the tireless work they do;
The people who actually read this blog;

Clown Noses.

Most importantly, what the clown nose represents in the work that we do. To me, it represents the moment we first break down boundaries between us and our audience. It is the smiles that we create on stage, and those that are created for us. It is flattery, inspiration, creativity, and silliness. It is nearly always framed by a smile. Cheers to inspiring smiles, one clown nose at a time!

Happy 2013, friends. Make the most of it!
