Eventide

and now it is nighttime,

eventide,
when we put the Circus to sleep –
as much as the Circus ever sleeps;
as much as anyone in the Circus sleeps.
I hear there are still bright lights and strange sights, and while it’s true that it’s a bit easier to be tricked by the Unseelie and slip into Faerieland when the Sun has taken his leave, that need not stop you from having a good time.
From those of us who sometimes slumber, I bid you a good night, and I wish upon you dreams at least half as grand as what we’ll do tomorrow.
If you DO sleep, sleep well. And if you want to sleep, let me give you something you’ll want to forget until you wake…
…because it’s the best thought for a new day, but if expressed when you want your mind quiet, restful, and at peace, you might find yourself with…difficulties.
So relax. Take care of each other. Say your good-evenings. Tip your bartenders, buy a drink for your performers, dance a loving and stately pre-bed waltz with your shadow. Sleep much. Tomorrow will be huge, because…
….THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN!
THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN!
THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN!
