It’s like I’m outside at a circus, looking through a dirty glass window, watching all the kids having fun inside…
Climbing tall ladders to reach high wires. Pulling a lion’s tail. Stepping on the oversized shoes of clowns.
In time, I turned back to pass between bended fence posts and begin my journey home – 10,000 steps.
