Nimly, the ex-circus entertainer


Nimly used to be a circus entertainer, and for the most part, she loved her job. The children would laugh at every trick she magically mustered and every acrobatic feat she would dare! But as she got older, she realized that she had to find something new to do with her life. Oh yes, making people laugh is a wonderful thing, but was that why she was put on this earth?

She traveled the world, looking for inspiration, seeking, in vain, her life's purpose, until one day, she came to a still lake. She looked inside, and saw a beautiful blue face staring back at her. When she smiled, the face smiled back. It was then that she realized that all this time, she had been searching for what she possessed all along. Her gift, her reason for being, had all along, been her ability to smile and to make others do so, too. She smiled into the lake once again, and dipped her hand into the water, creating ripples. Each and every ripple carried a snapshot of that smile. The ripples became waves, and the waves eventually reached shore, all bringing with them, a beautiful smile. The people and animals on the beach at the moment the waves washed ashore were all filled with a joy...a joy that kept on spreading with each new person they touched...

Thank you, Mendy! It's hard for me to explain, but this little creation almost wrote her own story. I think every piece of art should have a story...they all deserve it :)
