May 28.Day 149. Balancing act
But I admit I am attracted to circus, both the old sawdust in a big top type circus and the far more artistic type we now see that is more likely to be a Cirque rather than a Circus. Graceful, fluid, mesmerising and captivating.
Today in the most unlikely circus venue - the Myer Centre food court - there was a lunchtime display of the most extraordinary tissue acrobatics by a performer from the Aerial Angels group. Watching her it was possible to think you might have died and gone to heaven. An angelic display to be sure. Shoppers were left speechless although one word did come to my mind: "ouch".
Yep, I might think there's a lot of bending over backwards in my life but I've got nothing on this girl.
Confirmation again, that I'm not cut out for the circus. I'll leave it to the experts like this little angel.
