Taking Up Where I Left Off


WordPress was throwing a wobbly last night but seems OK now, so I’ll continue the picture theme:

The Great Outdoors

Looking forward to the summer!



Wrestling on the sea shore seems fun, but weights on the beach in the sand… surely a bit impractical? Whereas trying new tricks in the outdoor gym – fun!


A cloudier day, but definitely warm enough to be shirtless…


It’s great to train outdoors even when the weather is not so sunny – the wind on your chest as you run, the sun (hopefully) on your back when it comes out from behind a cloud, and even, sometimes, the rain on your skin too:

Snow plus sun is a great combination in which to be shirtless:


…but many will say “can’t beat the beach!”…



An interesting entry position there for the handstand…


Well, he’s happy to be on the sand. Just needs to get those boots off and the jeans! And maybe more…


Time for a bit of a stretch?



Shoot a few baskets?


Anyone for tennis?



An outdoor gym within sight of the sea. Kewl!


Perfection… “look at me!”


…and that, guys, is what we should be aiming for. An amazing fit body, lovingly prepared for whichever sport takes your fancy. Our sport, acrobatics, is all about what you can do with your body, and I guess showing it off is what we do. Hence the fixation on going shirtless and barefoot whenever we can, and training hard even as the years advance! And it’s what I’ve written about in these books, plus that very important matter of falling in love with Dave, sharing being created gay with like-minded friends, joining the circus and having (mis)adventures. Some of you, I know, have read and enjoyed the books, and I would love for the rest of you to take the plunge and do the same. Click on the covers for more information. e-books are available too.

The first part...The second part...Cover 3 Thumb


And, in the meantime, this is the last post from our place in Wales UK. It’s back to Oxford tonight and back to Tennessee – with its curious absence of sunny beaches (!!) – on Saturday. But at least we have plenty of sun and open spaces to enjoy it in. So I sign off with one more picture which says it all, looking forward to the summer… acrobatics, sun, sea… and a trip across the ocean coming up! Bye for now!


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...
