I’m a ‘Twenty-a-Day’ Man…

A break from the recent flood of philosophy (but I will share my ‘coming-out’ experience about my son shortly)…

What I mean by ‘twenty-a-day’ is not cigarettes (well, would you have expected fitness freaks to be smoking?) but handstands. On days when we don’t spend hours training acrobatics anyway, it is important to keep in practice, using any useful features available to you such as the nice sign above on a UK beach. At least 20 a day in all styles, and preferably a great deal more, since one’s living depends upon keeping it good! So this post is a selection of nice ‘classic’ handstand pictures.

Of course, if you can get into a gym, then so much the better!

We’ll come to the one-hand balances later.

Actually, inspired by re-reading Vol 2 for the final proofing (and selecting some bits to share here shortly) I will offer one little item of philosophy:

‘It’s never too late to be what you might have been’

George Eliot

 In other words, if you always fancied trying a bit of balancing and never got around to it, give it a go! You could yet be a star…

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
