Before I can run off and join the circus instead of just being an acrobat groupie, I have to start taking some lessons. Good thing for me that I have a friend starting up a school, and I have a few web skills to barter for classes. Time to get on the silks! (Or hopefully soon I will know all the real lingo). I can supplement the climbing bruises typically on my knees with ones on my arms from getting tangled up in the aerial silks (I googled it).

Also, as usual, circus stuff lends itself to great pictures and to playing around with all the fun filters. I look much more dramatic on the rope in black and white. The horizontal dancing was fun, but I think I still prefer going vertically when in a harness and on a rope.
