The Ring of Time by Clinton Perkins download in ePub, pdf, iPad
As I watched with the others, our jaws adroop, our eyes alight, I became painfully conscious of the element of time. It has been ambitious and plucky of me to attempt to describe what is indescribable, and I have failed, as I knew I would. Its circular nature, how things move forward, and yet things are also captured in time. The bathing suit proved as self-reliant as its owner and stood up well enough without benefit of strap.
And it gets him to thinking about time. Her ride ended as casually as it had begun.
Then I went back to the kitchen and read the newspaper. In most respects she was like any of the two or three dozen showgirls you encounter if you wander about the winter quarters of Mr. One ring is always bigger than three. The Ring of Time intertwines the long-explored concepts of time travel with that of the out-of-body experience.
And buried in the familiar boast of its advance agents lies the modesty of most of its people. Interestingly, Sam Cooke, who hailed from Chicago, was totally horrified by his first experiences traveling with his gospel group through the South. White often started with the micro and moved into the macro.
At any rate, it is worth reporting that long before the circus comes to town, its most notable performances have already been given. Everywhere was segregated in America then, but visiting the South from New York would be a reminder of how bad it really was. But her grave face and the naturalness of her manner gave her a sort of quick distinction and brought a new note into the gloomy octagonal building where we had all cast our lot for a few moments.
Its magic is universal and complex. They have been trapped on this planet since before men walked the earth, and have unwittingly given rise to mankind.
The bathing suit proved as self-reliant as its owner and stood up well enough without benefit of a strap. As she walked toward us to leave, there was a quick, small burst of applause. At one point the neck strap of her bathing suit broke and she went twice around the ring in the classic attitude of a woman making minor repairs to a garment. Her legs were bare and she wore high heels, which probed deep into the loose tanbark and kept her ankles in a state of constant turmoil. In short, a man has to catch the circus unawares to experience its full impact and share its gaudy dream.
For me the circus is at its best before it has been put together. This argument is taken up in The Ring of Time. She had on a short-skirted costume and conical straw hat. The connections are not made properly, or it tries to put two unequal things on an equal playing field. It is the difference between planetary light and the combustion of stars.
