Roadside Carnival

Mellissae Lucia RoadsideCarnivalRMark2Irom

Roadside carnival. Don’t you just love those words. It conjures up visions of strong men with barbells, sword swallowing vixens, and bearded ladies flanked by man-eating lions. A time between the worlds where anything could happen. They now play Hip Hop and pop songs about taking selfies over the loud speakers, but I still feel like I am in a Diane Arbus photo shoot honoring what were once called the “sideshow freaks.”  This treasure caught me by surprise as I headed into town the other night. Life is so magical.
