Sketch for a new print...

Once upon a time a little girl went to the circus for the first time. On the way there her father, the fireman, stopped by the local grocery and purchased a large bag of bananas, oranges, grapes and apples. This was so that she would not be "tempted" to eat cotton candy, ice cream, candied apples, popcorn and taffy. He had gotten free tickets because, fireman were always getting free things. When they reached the large auditorium she saw thousands of other children laughing and screaming and having a wonderful experience with their balloons and soda. There were Shriners and clowns everywhere. The clowns looked and smelled very frightening. To her it was all a bit unbearable because at that time she didn't realize that she also had a bad case of the measles.  One reason she was there without her sister who had stayed home sick.  Her seat was very very high up in the rafters of the auditorium.  It was so high up that the circus looked like "The Smallest Show on Earth" from where she was sitting.  She thought the circus would never end but finally she returned home and that night made a wish on a star to never ever have to go to a circus again and to this day her wish has come true.
