The C I R C U S show ended on Saturday and by all rights I should have taken it down already

but it is always hard to take down a show.

I am aware that this exact and particular configuration will never happen again.

I think of those who did not get to see it and I want to hold on to one more day of possibility.

It is a challenge to hold loosely to those people or things that we love.

What follows is always an unknown.

Today it is potatoes and the surprise of reading the words below written on a sidewalk I stepped upon.  

In the words of Sting


If you love somebody

If you love someone, set them free.




Perhaps it is the holding too tightly which can kill us.
