Little Bell, (2007)*

When we first met she was wearing a
purple top hat at a poetry circus event
she'd helped to create. I joined in that
weekend, happy to trade city life for
camping overnight in a nearby
canyon. She spoke passionately about
archetypes and Carl Jung and months
later, when I realized she was a
professional clown, I knew I would
follow her.
