THE CIRCUS CALLED LIFE!!

CIRCUS- A PUBLIC SPECTACLE/ENTERTAINMENT CONSISTING TYPICALLY OF A VARIETY OF PERFORMANCES BY ACROBATS,CLOWNS AND TRAINED ANIMALS.


 IT USUALLY CONSISTS OF AN ARENA- TAKE THAT AS LIFE IN THIS PARTICULAR INSTANCE-SURROUNDED BY TIERS OF SEATS FOR SPECTATORS LIKE ME- IN WHICH VARIOUS TYPES OF SHOWS ARE PERFORMED-SOME HAPPY, SOME SAD,SOME FUNNY,SOME SKILLFUL,SOME BREATHTAKING AND SOME PLAIN CLUMSY!! THE MASTER OF CEREMONIES IS USUALLY THE RINGMASTER-WE ALL KNOW WHO THAT IS!!! THE LORD ABOVE--WHO CONDUCTS THE ENTIRE SHOW!!


THE WORD CIRCUS IS ALSO SUGGESTIVE OF FRENETIC ACTIVITY,NOISY DISORDER,THEATRICALITY,RAZZLE-DAZZLE,SENSATIONALISM AND SOMETHING WHICH IS RIOTOUSLY ENTERTAINING. I THINK I CAN VERY EASILY SUBSTITUTE THE WORD LIFE WHEREVER CIRCUS IS MENTIONED BECAUSE LIFE IS ALL THIS AND MUCH,MUCH MORE.


LET ME GIVE YOU A COUPLE OF EXAMPLES. DO I HEAR EXASPERATED SIGHS AND PAINED GROANS??!! YES I DO!! BUT I CHOOSE TO IGNORE AND CARRY ON NEVER THE LESS. GOING TO USE MR.C 'S EAR-PLUGS NOW SO GROAN AWAY!


SO WE HAVE THE CLOWNS-PEOPLE WHO LOVE AND LIVE TO ENTERTAIN. THEY MAKE US LAUGH WITH THEIR SOMETIMES BIZARRE/COMIC /CLUMSY ANTICS AND SOMETIMES  THEY MAKE US WEEP BECAUSE OF THEIR HELPLESSNESS AND INNATE SADNESS. ISN'T THERE JUST SOMETHING SO PATHETIC  ABOUT THEIR GAUDY,GORY ,PAINTED FACES?? THEY FRIGHTEN US TOO BECAUSE WE JUST CAN'T SEE THEIR REAL FACES AT ALL. THEIR FACES ARE ALWAYS MASKED AND  WE JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE THINKING OR FEELING OR  TRULY EXPRESSING. ARE THEY ANGRY WITH US OR SAD OR ARE THEY JUST PLAIN INDIFFERENT??!! FOR ME IT'S IMPORTANT THAT I  KNOW WHERE I STAND WITH PEOPLE OR IT UNNERVES ME AND I JUST WITHDRAW!!I KNOW A COUPLE OF CLOWNS IN MY LIFE AND I KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE FROM THEM !!


NOW LETS TURN TO THE ACROBATS!! THEY ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE TRULY SKILLFUL. THE ACCOMPLISHED SOULS WHO CAN TWIST / TURN AND PERFORM A VARIETY OF DEATH DEFYING ACTS WHICH BOGGLE THE MIND AND CONFUSE THE BODY. THEY ARE CLEVER-OH! SO CLEVER! THEY KNOW HOW TO MANIPULATE AND CONNIVE (NOT NECESSARILY A BAD WORD!)  THEY HAVE THE BELIEF THAT THEY CAN DO IT AND FRANKLY ONCE YOU HAVE THAT BELIEF IN YOURSELF NO ONE CAN STOP YOU. YOU CAN ACHIEVE UNFATHOMABLE AND UNSCALABLE HEIGHTS. IT'S ALL THERE JUST WITHIN YOUR GRASP-IT'S YOURS FOR THE TAKING AND POSSESSING!! I HAVE ALWAYS ENVIED THEM-THE ACROBATS,THE TRAPEZE ARTISTS,THE GYMNASTS! HOW I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THEIR KIND OF DISCIPLINE/DEDICATION AND SINGLE MINDED FOCUS TO PERFORM AND ACHIEVE WHAT EVER IT IS THAT I EVER WANTED TO DO.AND ALSO TO  HAVE THAT ABILITY TO ALWAYS THINK TWO STEPS AHEAD  AND TO BE ABLE TO PUSH MY MIND AND BODY TO IT'S LIMITS TO ACHIEVE THE BEST IN ME IS JUST AWESOME!!!


NOW LET'S COME TO THE TRAINED ANIMALS!! AND AGAIN LET ME PLEASE REITERATE THAT I MEAN NO OFFENCE TO ANYBODY. LIKE I MENTIONED IN ONE OF MY EARLIER BLOGS THESE ARE MY MAD MUSINGS AND SHOULD BE TAKEN IN THAT SPIRIT!!! PLUS I AM MAD,NUTTY,CRAZY,ECCENTRIC!! TAKE YOUR PICK OF YOUR FAVE ADJECTIVE!! SO ECCENTRIC PEOPLE SHOULD BE ALLOWED THEIR ECCENTRICITIES!!!


SO WE HAVE THE PEACOCKS WHO ARE ALWAYS STRUTTING AROUND DISPLAYING THEIR WARES AND ALWAYS AWARE OF HOW GOOD THEY LOOK AND HOW BLESSED YOU ARE TO KEEP THEIR COMPANY!! THEY ARE THE ONES WITH THE FANCY GIZMO'S,THE TRENDIEST CLOTHES AND THE LATEST CARS!! THEY ARE VERY WITH IT AND TOP OF IT!! THEY ARE INVITED TO ALL THE PAGE THREE PARTIES AND HOST SOME OF THEM! ITS ALL ABOUT THE APPEARANCE AND VERY LITTLE OF THE SUBSTANCE! THEY ARE SHALLOW,SUPERFICIAL AND VERY FICKLE. SURPRISES OF SURPRISE MOST OF THEM SUFFER FROM LOW SELF ESTEEM AND AN INFERIORITY COMPLEX THEREFORE HAVE TO PUT ON SUCH A SHOW TO APPEAR SUPERIOR!!


THEN WE HAVE THE GORILLAS WHO GO AROUND THUMPING THEIR CHESTS MADLY AND PUMPING THEIR FISTS AND GENERALLY SHOUTING FROM THE ROOFTOPS THAT THIS IS ME!!! LOOK! LOOK AT ME!! I AM MACHO , BRAVE AND LOUD AND AT THE VERY LEAST I CAN OUT SHOUT YOU AND DEFINITELY IF NOTHING ELSE CAN WIN A ROUND OR TWO OF ARM WRESTLING WITH YOU!! I SEE A LOT OF THEM IN MY GYM STRUTTING AROUND IN THEIR BARELY THERE,SEE THROUGH VESTS (UGHHHH!!) WITH BULGING BICEPS , WORKED OUT CHESTS AND SCRAWNY,CHICKEN LEGS! VERY BRAWNY AND NOT AT ALL BRAINY! ITS DUH! THIS AND DUH! THAT!! THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS TO THEM IS THEIR PROTEIN SHAKES AND " LADKI PATAOING " STRATEGIES!!
IN MY OPINION VERY AVOIDABLE!!


THEN WE HAVE THE DOES/FAWNS. THEY ARE SWEET,SUBMISSIVE AND DOCILE CREATURES. THEY ARE INCAPABLE OF ANY HARM AND NEED ALL THE PROTECTION THAT THEY CAN GET!THEY BRING OUT THE NATURAL MATERNAL/PATERNAL INSTINCTS IN US AND WE WANT TO KEEP THEM AWAY FROM HARM'S WAY. WE WANT TO PET THEM,STROKE THEM ,CARESS THEM AND ALWAYS KEEP THEM CLOSE TO OUR HEARTS.


THEN WE HAVE THE ELEPHANTS-THE GENTLE GIANTS WITH THE GENTLE SOULS!! THEY LOOK BIG AND ARE BIG BUT DON'T ACT BIG. IF ANYTHING THEY ARE QUIET,SERENE,COMPOSED AND GENTLE,VERY GENTLE. THEY WILL ALWAYS BE THERE TO LEND YOU SUPPORT,TO WIPE A SILENT TEAR,TO PULL YOU OUT OF A HOLE IF NECESSARY AND CARRY YOU ON THEIR BACK IF THE NEED BE. BUT PUSH THEM BEYOND A LIMIT AND THEY WILL TEAR YOU AND EVERYTHING AROUND YOU APART!! YOU HAVE HAD IT THEN AND BETTER RUN FOR COVER!!


LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT THE LEAST LETS COME TO THE KING OF THE THE JUNGLE-THE LION!!! FRANKLY THE LION CAN BE A HUGE PAIN IN THE BUTT WITH ALL HIS GROWLING / ROARING AND AMBLING AROUND WITH HIS HUGE ASS STICKING BEHIND HIM!! BUT HE IS THE KING UNDOUBTEDLY SO THERE IS SOMETHING MAJESTIC AND APPEALING ABOUT HIM!! HE HAS THE X-FACTOR,THE CHUTZPAH,THE CHARISMA!! WHEN HE WALKS INTO A ROOM WE ALL TURN TO STARE ,LOOK AND GAWK! WE ARE IN AWE OF HIM AND SECRETLY HOW EVER MUCH WE DENY IT WE ALL WANT TO BE HIM AND LIVE HIS LIFE! WE WANT TO BE HEAD OF OUR CLAN ORDERING AND DEMANDING AND WANTING! THEIR ARE NO REQUESTS HERE AND CERTAINLY NO PLEAS! ALL THE LION WANTS IS INSTANT OBEDIENCE AND SUBMISSION!! OTHERWISE THAT'S THE END OF THE ROAD FOR YOU BUDDY!! YOU WILL BE GOBBLED UP AND THE UNDESIRED  ENTRAILS WILL BE SPAT OUT!!!PLUS TELL ME WHICH PERSON IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULDN'T WANT A COUPLE OF LIONESSES HANGING  AROUND TO HUNT FOR THEM, LOOK AFTER THEM,GROOM THEM AND GENERALLY DO ALL THEIR BIDDING!!


SO FOLKS YOU HAVE TO DECIDE WHICH CATEGORY YOU FIT IN AND WHICH ACT YOU WANT TO PERFORM! THERE ARE NO HARD AND FAST RULES HERE. I THINK IN THE END WE ALL ARE A MIX AND MATCH OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF PERSONALITIES AND VARYING ACTS.AS LONG AS WE ARE TRUE TO OURSELVES, THERE ARE ARE NO RIGHTS AND WRONGS!! LIVE AND LET LIVE-LET THAT BE THE MANTRA HENCEFORTH. AND IN THE END WHAT ARE WE? WE ALL ARE  JUST PUPPETS IN THE ULTIMATE RING MASTER'S HAND. WE ALL HAVE TO DO HIS BIDDING AND HE CALLS ALL THE SHOTS!!!
