Thank you for the reference! (I couldn't remember the details of Devant's expulsion and, later return).

The biggest "thing" that I ever "hid" was a dove! But, since I was "involved" with several circuses, I've "washed an elephant or two". I checked my copy of "Hiding...", and, found the brief mention of Devant's "return to the circle".

I was interested, partly because I was an AIMC (with gold star!). Jay Marshall had asked me to join, back in the '70s. I resigned, years later, as I had no real interest in the news from over there...

Reading Devant's routines in "the" book, when I was a bit younger, gave me an appreciation for his philosophy.
