…from the Danish, meaning “surrounding oneself with people and things that make you comfortable and nourish the soul…”

OK, maybe the Danes got it right. That sound’s like ‘Living the Dream’ exactly! Could this be where the expression ‘hugger mugger’ comes from?

This one also in e-bookCover2 Thumband, finally...A recent e-mail correspondent asked me ‘Are you guys real?’ on the apparent basis that our lives sounded “too idyllic” to be true. Well, maybe they are now, and maybe they were at the time that the first book describes, but by the time we got to the third book – well, it was an entirely different story. Maybe I’ll share our reply to that guy in a future post.

For now, let us just “surround ourselves” with some appropriate pictures which illustrate the interests of athletic gay guys! For starters, don’t let a silly thing like a broken arm get in the way of your training…


Find a gym buddy…


I’m not sure you really need to train in the locker room – and there’s always the great outdoors…

31 (5)

Looking good…



(I can’t quite figure that one – does the guy have his kitchen outdoors?)…


…but the real ‘Hygga’ is enjoying what you do with like-minded friends…



…or maybe more of them: is this a ‘tree hygga’? (sorry, awful wordplay joke)…

…but, even in the bedroom with him, it’s always worth a moment or two to check out your definition!


…get ripped, stay happy, and share the Hygga!

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...
