Yes, Judy Collins did the song...back in the Hippies Era...

What did it mean? What does it mean?

...coming your way soon :-)

Comment by DKULT on Saturday

I made a video of Clown Art I found for Angie a couple weeks ago and posted on FB. You turn the clown nose and it is a music box that plays, "Send in the Clowns," a very famous song by Judy Collins

Must have been Jack's idea-so synchronistic

Comment by Mail Art Martha on Friday

Thanks Katerina, I didn't know the song or is it your own poem?

"Isn't it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground,
You in mid-air.
Send in the clowns..."
"Isn't it bliss?
Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around,
One who can't move.
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns...."
"And where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns.
Well, maybe next year."...or next month :-)

Thank you to all for remembering me and sending your mail art to cheer up this dismal January. Today we had a hailstorm, that was kind of nice and it did not last long. You shall be getting something from me soon if you haven't got it already.
