I took up this new hobby recently. I had never done it before, but it felt somehow really right from the start.
The hobby is aerial acrobatics. You know, trapeze hoop and silks and such.
When I was little, I wanted to be a trapeze artist, but I never even got to try it. So I gave up on that dream. Going to circus practices now sounds a bit crazy, but I really like it. I tried it a year ago in May but I had to quit after a few classes because I moved to Finland. Luckily I managed to pick it up again at the beginning of this year and have been going to classes for a few months now. I get to combine skills from gymnastics and climbing. And maybe it even helps me to climb better. Or maybe not. In any case it make me a happier person.
I’m quoting Astrid Lindgren’s children’s hero Pippi Longstocking’s wise words in the picture. And the picture is a close up from March Chagall’s painting.
