isn't it rich?
are we a pair?
me here at last on the ground,
you in mid-air.
send in the clowns.

isn't it bliss?
don't you approve?
one who keeps tearing around,
one who can't move.
where are the clowns?
send in the clowns.

just when i'd stopped opening doors,
finally knowing the one that i wanted was yours,
making my entrance again with my usual flair,
sure of my lines,
no one is there.

don't you love a farce?
my fault i fear.
i thought that you'd want what i want, sorry my dear
but where are the clowns?
quick, send in the clowns.
don't bother, they're here.

isn't it rich?
isn't it queer,
losing my timing this late
in my career?
and where are the clowns?
there ought to be clowns.
well, maybe next year.

I am profoundly sad to see you go.

Your posts have been a reason to travel on the interwebs.

Please come back and keep inspiring me.

Yes indeed: come back soon! It's essential - you help me see into my life and corners of my memory... Whithout a doubt, one of the best blog in my list so far (out of 674 feeds). Cheers to you.

I love the blog dearly; it's really an eye-opener for me. I've tracked down upwards of a dozen films now thanks to you, some of which I'm rewatching with new eyes. Enjoy the hiatus, and hope to see more in the future. Cheers and thanks!
