An update from Pricilla:
On the road again!
I loaded up my big cargo van and drove off towards Chicago for the Midwest Clown Association in Indiana.
I don’t think I am exaggerating that I have done this trip dozens, if not over a hundred, times over the past twenty-five years.
I did it as a young woman with a new business, then as a newlywed, then a new mother with baby in the backseat. I did it with friends and alone after my divorce.
Many things have changed throughout the years.
I’ll never drive through Chicago without thinking of Blab-i-gail and Fritz and all the times I wearily pulled into their driveway to be refreshed by their friendship, love, a cup of coffee, a glass of wine, a good meal, and lots of laughter.
Blabs and Fritz are gone, but I am back at the MCA Round Up with the friends old and new that remain.
I have been asked why I still do this.
Why do I travel across the country with my merchandise to set up and sell costumes and make up and teach a few classes?
How can it be worth all the trouble?!?
If I remodeled my business to be internet-based only, downsized everything and everyone, wouldn’t I be more profitable?
Maybe. But I would lose the relationships.
Clowning is about relationships.
You can’t put a “profit and loss” formula on that.
It makes me think about Mooseburger Camp and how to get folks to understand what it is really all about.
But it is about the relationships, the friendships, the laughter, the understanding. That is what Mooseburger Clown Camp is all about!
Those things last so much longer than one week in Minnesota. Those things you carry in your heart for the rest of your life are so much more valuable.
So I’ll keep traveling to share my love of clowning.
I’ll see you down the road!

Julia has signed her contract for another year on the road with RBBB. I am very happy for my little bird. She has really taken flight!
