Lots of my Tribe members now out of work.
We are grieving here. My life changed forever by working on that show. I am who I am because of my Ringling life. It gets on you strong.
I have opinions about it all that I would discuss around a fire.
Those opinions I'll keep off of here.
Here are some of my photos from those Glory Daze.....https://flic.kr/s/aHsjF5YWzY
As to the animal issues. It is complicated. I saw good and bad but mainly good. I rode an elephant that had killed before. She loved me and I her. she killed a cruel night animal keeper who beat them as he got drunk. They have a way of taking care of their own. She loved performing and I rode her everyday. She would quiver in anticipation of the appluase. Sadly, not all animals get to be free.
Not do people.
What is next? No pets? Guide dogs? No recue animals? No Police Canine units? We all have to go Vegan?
The animals got watered, fed and cleaned. Us clowns did not!
Seems that we live in a We
Society. Not an I
or a Me
but a We
don't like what you represent so We
will spend our energy to stop what You
do and what We
do not do.
Happens to Control Liners and R/Cers. We
don't like your noise and fun so We
will put a stop to it.
