Circus Smirkus 2008: Smirkusology: Part 1

For the fourth consecutive year, Wingnut and I attended Circus Smirkus in Greensboro. Go to their web site or see their videos on YouTube for more details of the group. If you are fortunate enough to live in New England, be sure to catch them on tour this summer. I took 1,429 photos of the show with my Canon camera! I immediately tossed 409 shots and chose 37 of those to post. But not all today! Today you see two things: juggling and one aerial act.

A Burial

What do you do when the woman you called Mother for forty-eight years is buried with hate, resentment and jealousies? You pray incessantly for a family that most likely never existed. You pray for forgiveness and to grant forgiveness.

There is a new blog about forgiveness: The Sunflower. It is a discussion and reflection about forgiveness in our society. The blog is based on Simon Wiesenthal's book The Sunflower: On the Possibilities and Limits of Forgivesness (a link for the book is on the sidebar of The Sunflower). I first read it in 2006 on the recommendation of my minister.

Please go to The Sunflower blog. If you want to join us, buy the book and read it with us. Tell me, Sandy Carlson (of Writing in Faith) or Mary Stebbins Taitt (of so many beautiful blogs) that you want to join, and you will be a contributor. If you don't want to contribute, be sure to grab the feed (by RSS or e-mail) and comment.

What did I do on Saturday? I did not go to the burial. Wingnut and I went to the circus. 


Camera Critters: Farmer Bob's Heifers Group Shots

Many of Farmer Bob's heifers are Holstein/Jersey crosses, which explains why these heifers are black and brown! My other Camera Critters post is about the Jersey Boss of Farmer Bob's heifers. All of the heifers are pregnant. Farmer Bob runs an organic dairy farm. The chains and red tags on their necks identify them for inspectors (and for Farmer Bob, who needs to consult a list in the barn to match the tags and the names). Farmer Bob's wife doesn't need the list!

Thank you so much for visiting!
