the ringling brothers circus train just pulled into austin and is sitting a block away from my house. i'll drive by it about a dozen times between now and sunday when they pull out of town to move on to their next stop. i am endlessly fascinated by what i imagine happens on that train. i know i romanticize it far beyond what is true, most likely, but if life isn't a whirlwind of love and laughter on a circus train that's a damned shame. this week's entry is for children of all ages! ladies and gentlemen, the greatest show on earth (1952)!
