Coming Attractions

 The circus is coming to town! I bought a flea circus, small insects incased in ancient amber, from Russia with love.

Curious and strange and a bit fantastical.

I love these even more after watching Happy People a Year in the Taiga, have you seen it? It's one of those unforgettable Werner Herzog documentaries chronicling a year in the Siberian wilderness following the life of a trapper though all four seasons. I think what I love best about Hezog films is the sort of whispering narration and sequences of no narration that make you feel like you're there yourself, you forget there is a cameraman.

I'm making rings!

xo Happy People, love Robug
