My first ever blog post. What first came to mind was the moment I first realized I am a “REAL” aerialist. A few years ago two friends invited me to lunch so that they could ask me questions.
“How did you do it? How did you become a real aerialist?”
I just stared at them for a moment in confusion. “REAL aerialist?” What could they mean by that? By the end of the conversation I realized though, I am in fact a real aerialist.
For anyone curious, or hoping to make their way to this same odd profession, or just to understand how I got here. This is the advice that surfaced during our conversation.
