So this post will not be conveying wisdom, giving sage advice, or solving any important human problems. It is simply a moment in the midst of real life; openly shared. A snippet of the glamorous life; so please enjoy.. Part one of the glamorous life is managing a constantly shifting schedule.
Transforming into a new character is an artistic journey. One of the elements of transforming is creating the perfect costume to further develop the character.

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.
