“Spring is nature’s way of saying- lets Party!”
-Robin Williams

Queen Emeralda and her flying monkeys from Gregangelo & Velocity Circus’ production of “Oohs & Aahs in OZ “

In preparing to send New Year (spring) “thank you” cards to all of our varying clients and collaborators, I came across some springtime proverbs that resonate as inspiration for a message to match the above Velocity image.

This one below really rings with me as I have been recently exclaiming around circus headquarters in response to several incoming lame, timid, fear-laden requests for concepts: “They are asking us to deliver a pot of dirt without the flowers!!!”

You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming.
~Pablo Neruda

To all you global revolutionaries fighting for justice, I hope triumph is on the horizon:
“Spring is the only revolutionary whose revolution has succeeded.” 
― Marianne Van Hirtum

For all you lovers:
“I want to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.” 
― Pablo Neruda,

To the GLBT community:
Now every field is clothed with grass, and every tree with leaves; now the woods put forth their blossoms, and the year assumes its gay attire.

My personal favorite “Willi Wonka-esque” exchange following a performance well done:
It is a business doing pleasure with you!
-Dolly Parton
