I want to take a moment and express affection and love for every human who defended *actual* clowns or circuses today.

Some day, down the road a bit, it will be safe to perform again. When that day comes, I'll be doing it for you.

In the meantime, keep breathing, being kind, and punching up. <3

@RussSharek wouldn't want to be in a world without real clowns ✌️


Nice to (virtually) meet you. :)

There's a few other here in the fedi, and I'm proud to know them.

@RussSharek I was a bit sad when Mr Biden used the term “clown” in vain last night, referring to Mr Trump as a “clown” 😖💦 No further comments 😫💦💦


An optimistic view:

A long time ago, I started making intentional efforts to being a better human. In doing this, I tripped over so many long-ingrained habits I needed to adjust, edit, or grow out of entirely.

I have to assume it's that way for other people.

If that's the case, and someone has a moment where they are reduced to name calling, I'd rather take the hit from their loss of control than have that harm come to anyone else.

Mind you, I don't have to like it. :)


We love you Russ.

Keep being the trickster spirit incarnate that you are.
