It’s been decades since I’ve been to the carnival, but my camera told me to go today. I went to see the colors, the dark and light, the weird food. The carnies were people of all ages and colors, as were the kids who loved the rides. I made it down the monkey house slide awkwardly, but without injury. My inner kid couldn’t convince me to try the cotton candy or a hand dipped corny dog. Maybe I’ll go back for a ride someday, if my camera insists.
