Clowns. Not the scary kind that are terrifying people around the country these days. Well, not the ones with rubber noses. We do have clowns about to be our government leaders. And that is why this song came to mind. “Send In the Clowns,” in its sad, ironic melody verses pictorial, theatrical words and Judy Collins’ beautiful voice, speaks to the fading love between two people. But it also speaks to a sense of loss in our democracy right now.
Enjoy your Sunday.
