Who can deny that the popular lyrics “Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right” aptly describe our political culture? Likewise, who is bold enough to deny that the “circus life” is an apt metaphor for large portions our life? A circus can’t be boiled down to an aggregation of spectacles—the presence of clowns doesn’t make the circus. Outlandish characters are usually part of the equation, but when we say circus, we’re more so referencing a particular environment, a style of presentation, a way of listening and watching. The Cultivated Life sprouts out of this powerful metaphor, combined with another, the antithetical metaphor of the cultivated garden.
