I currently work for the Cameron Carnival as a domesticated clown. I’m the head clown in this family’s circus act. Usually, I’m juggling upside down or falling on my head.On my down times I can be seen with my noise stuck in a good book, spilling coffee down my shirt, and aimlessly wandering about wondering where did I put my glasses.

You can always drop me a line at belleofthecarnival@hotmail.com.

  1. Hey– sorry to post on your blog, didn’t know how to get a hold of you! I was just going through our subscribers, and wanted to let you know we’ve had a mini facelift on the blog, and I dread being a pain… but we switched from wordpress.com to wordpress.org which means— subscribers have to sign up again. I was suprised to find out there was no way to transfer over all of our current subscriptions! Boo. Anyways, we would love for you to continue following us.. if you don’t mind signing up one more time! Really like your theme, and the blog’s name– cute :)

  2. Hey! thanks for visiting my blog all of those months ago. yours is deliciously charming. :) I love reading blogs by moms. They often have the most interesting things to say. Cheers!

  3. You certainly seem to be riding the wave my dear, good job, 181 likes and over 500 comments, that is busy work and appreciation in action. Most people do not get that kind of acceptance or response in a 12 year period.

    Thanks for stoppin by my watering hole today and checking out Missing Boomer, tomorrow will be the bus stop and a little mind bender.

    Oh, by the way …. I am a tree hugger if this counts?


  4. Hi, can you add your name to this? http://uponatlas.wordpress.com/category/the-name-game/
    Basically, write you name onto a blank piece of paper, hold it front of your body, and take a photo of it (body shot only to preserve anonymity), send it to me and I’ll post your name up.

    I’m trying to amass different names; and it’ll be amazing to see the different names that people have! I hope you take part in this, it’ll be fun! If you want to see what I’m talking about, the link will show you


  5. I like the concept of a domestic clown–the other sort have always left me wanting, but domesticity lends itself to so many balancing acts, comic bits, and so forth. From what I’ve seen of your work, you are mastering a whole bunch of those arts very neatly! Cheers!

  9. Was that you? – I thought it might have been a glimpse I caught of myself through the looking glass… What a relief!

    Thank you for the delight your site has brought to my day!

  10. As there has been some confusion, I’d like my nominees to know, that the Versatile Blogger Award is given to you, if you declare to accept it by making a post on your blog!
    That post must have the rules 1-4 (you’ll find them in my post here: http://looserornot.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/the-versatile-blogger-award-yes-im-the-chosen-one/) fulfilled, that’s all.
    There is not a jury or a person picking one particular winner! The nominees themselves decide, if they want to accept the award.
    For further questions, don’t hesitate to contact me, and congrats if you choose to take the badge of honor. :D
    P.S.: Consider this as a private message to you. There is no need to approve it.

  11. Just read your amazing avalanche story – I must say that is something I never have and never hope to experience.

    Thanks for stopping by and following my blog. Nothing as exciting as avalanches there, but I hope you enjoy it.

  12. Hey!
    I think your blog is truly unique, so I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! Congrats! You can check it out on my recent post – ‘Versatile Blogger Award: Celebrating Bloggers’. Keep up the excellent work!
    – Gretta

    • Hi Gretta,

      Thank you for taking the time to nominate me for the versatile blogger award! I do not normally participate in these memes but feel truly honored that you thought of me.

      Best Wishes,


  13. Belle,

    I enjoyed reading your essays today and look forward to new posts. I have to say I find you intriguing. Your essays contain so much heartfelt musing, a generous amount of pain, intellectual curiosity, really just an earnestness. All that was plenty to pique my interest, then I learned you are a clown. Your writing seems so different from your day job, but I suppose that’s what makes you and your writing so interesting. Thanks for letting us peek into your world.
