One of my favorite actors growing up was Burt Lancaster, who was a circus performer before making it in Hollywood.
“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road
I was a clown for children's parties when I was 20, so I picked up a bunch of "circus" skills like juggling and unicylcing.
I was an usher for Le Cirque du Soleil before they became the global phenomenon that they have become.
I almost ran away with them to Montreal, almost....
I let my circus life and dreams fall away.
I became responsible and worked and worked and then....
When I started home schooling Skye, we found the circus again
We started doing aerial arts together .....in LA and in Atlanta.
