  • There is something Magical about a Carousel. No matter what age, we find joy, solace, comfort, exuberance.

    For Collins, a Carousel is a metaphor for the amazement of life….

    Up, and down…… the motion is a reflection of us… yet even in the downward descent, we can find joy.. because the up is simply around the corner… A child knows this, and there is no difference from or down – they are all a wonder.

    The wheel or circle is the wheel of life… but unlike a single moment where the entire future depends, the wheel returns to us for another chance….just as life allows us to get up, shake off the dirt… and triumph our way back to the top…

    Life is indeed a Carousel. Ride.
