Circus Flags

Thursday, January 3, 2013

This summer, a good friend of my husband's held his wedding reception at a traveling circus. The big top glowed white against the darkening sky, and flags from all around the world waved as proudly as queens. Paper ticket stubs in hand, we walked down a red carpet spread out over soft grass toward the tent, where the smells of popcorn, hay, and manure replaced those of grass and dirt.
