circus of life

We feel responsible for the world and each other as we fly through the air. We tell big stories on a human scale. About the impact we have on the world, and on each other. Circus is our language. An exciting language that evokes emotions and appeals to the imagination. A language that everyone understands, but hardly anyone speaks. We create a 'circus of life'.
