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.
