Just driving when Smoke Robinson came on the radio with “Tears of a Clown”.
“Now they’re some sad things known to man
But ain’t too much sadder than
The tears of a clown when there’s no one around”
I felt like he was singing to me and I just had to pull over. I just finished a presentation for work, a group of about 15. It went very well. Everyone laughed and complimented when the presentation was over – I was professional and effective. I made them laugh. I played the clown. Now, I am in the car on the side of the road, crying. But it’s OK, I needed this cry – and I am going to wipe off my face and drive on.
