A Stephen Sondheim song from A Little Night Music.
A song about the disappointments in life. The title is a circus reference to when an unforeseen disaster occurs, and the clowns are sent in to distract the audience from the commotion.
We’ve all had them.
What’s important is to use our experiences of them to help others and grow in ourselves. It’s also important how we react to them.
So just for a moment, a reflection on some disappointments, but that have shaped my life to make me a stronger person today.
I don’t want to look back on my life and see the disappointments, but rather the things I did to pick myself up from them.
What is your take on this beautiful song?
