Soon To Be Three

An opening ‘scowl’ for you. He doesn’t look too happy to be enjoying the ocean! Actually, we’re all a little bit grumpy today. Despite the unbroken sun here (currently 19C (66F)) when it was freezing at home in UK this morning. And the relatively warm sea!

Gary, our great martial arts friend and Zach’s partner, has decided he really does have to go back to the US and resume his job in the bank, at least for the time being. It’s been a real pleasure to have him here, not least for his participation in our shows – his rock steady support of our handstands on his head (for example) gives real confidence, and not least his exceptional talents like balancing on his stomach on one spear point – but because he’s ‘one of us’ – Tuan Jie. One of our close gay brotherhood. Oh well.

Everything is more fun in groups…

…but, for the moment, our foursome…

(that’s not us actually, since you ask)

…must become a threesome…

(nor is that)

Gary’s partner Zach will remain until just before Christmas, fulfilling his duties as a masseur here, since he no longer has a job to go back to in Tennessee, but clearly they will miss each other heaps, so I think that he will go back. Gary has another incentive to go – his high-end martial arts skills. He and a couple of others from his club in Knoxville have accepted a challenge for a TV documentary on “exceptional human skills” to meet up with folks from Canada in a sort of documentary about what the human body is capable of. Sounds great, and we’ll keep you posted when we have more details.

The three of us who remain here, Dave, Zach and I, will be working of course, but also enjoying each other’s company as a trio and without doubt in pairs too…

(well, maybe not that way – no beards here for starters, but a nice position for us to try)

(yes, more like, but there’s no obvious prospect of rain here right now)

…but definitely this way…

…whereupon we shall definitely not be grumpy any more. No, Gary’s decision is a sensible one since there is no permanent prospect of work here for him, and Zach only agreed to be a fill-in masseur as he’s so much an American at heart (well, half Mexican, but we went into all that in the earlier books). Which reminds me to remind you about the new one…

…just click on the cover for a link. A tale of an outcast boy in anguish over his sexuality. The other three are here:

Loving the Boy: ISBN 978-1-907732-30-0

The Power of Love: ISBN 978-1-907732-41-6

Against All Odds: ISBN 978-1-908645-35-7

OK. We can mope about losing Gary (and Zach more than us, for obvious reasons) but, for the rest of you, some happy guys looking after their fitness…

To finish for now, a final beach boy for you. And the answer to the question you’re probably about to ask is “I have no idea either!”

 

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...

    About the guy doing the headstand on the building’s edge: Great trick, but I hope some teen boy doesn’t try it before he becomes an expert!
