A Wonderful Life in the Circus

I have a colleague in The Art Quilt Network I've known for at least eight years, during which time we'd had many conversations. Yesterday I learned her husband had died suddenly. In reading his obituary, I was surprised to learn he had always wanted to be in the circus and had produced circuses for over 40 years. He lived his dream.

There is a real lesson there. Many people spend their entire lives at jobs they hate. How wonderful to read of a man who was able to make his dream come true by joining the circus.
