Matthew Won’t Be Stopping BY…

…we hope!

With the current ‘once-in-ten-years’ hurricane battering Cuba and headed for Florida, our UK relatives see the scenes of Floridans and Carolinas fleeing the coast and immediately presume the worst. In Tennessee, being on the fringes of hurricanes is not unknown, but the wind-speed predictions for our part of the world for the next five days remain below 10 mph, so I guess there will be survivors! We are more prone to see tornados (in the season) than hurricanes, but usually we’re on the fringe for them too. So, fingers crossed as we watch the great escape from the coast on TV.

I’ve said many times that we wish we lived closer to the coast. This is not one of the times. Our great friends Richard and CJ, who run a gymnastics club in Florida, have taken down a lot of equipment to safer storage and closed their building. Fingers crossed for them, too.

CJ appears briefly in my third book, Against All Odds: Richard, another Brit, appears in all three.

The first part...The second part...Cover 3 ThumbSo, as we wish our countrymen on the Atlantic coast well in the stormy weekend to follow, let us instead lose ourselves in a miscellany of fitness inspiration (as usual)!

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...

    Having never lived through one or the other (being that I am from Montreal, Québec), what difference do you make from one to the other?

      A tornado is a violently swirling and very local funnel of wind which can suck up entire small buildings into its vortex. They move relatively quickly across the countryside and are easily visible as a funnel-shaped intensely dark cloud. Hurricanes are areas of very deep low pressure covering hundreds of miles in diameter, with very strong winds circling them, anticlockwise in the northern hemisphere.
