I Won

I won a prize for registering on the IJA site for World Juggling Day. Last time I won a diablo. This time I won a DVD of one of the IJA competitions. I've been to a few of their conventions and their shows are always spectacular and inspiring. So I'm happy to have my own DVD to watch now. I think it's from 2008, but I didn't go that year so it will all be new to me. This year's convention is in Nevada. Wish I could go.

And here are photos of me juggling on World Juggling Day. I was sad no other jugglers showed up. They probably went to Irvine to juggle with the Orange Jugglers.

Making New Juggling Videos

I've been waiting until I was thin enough to look decent in a juggling video then I had to accept the fact I'm going to be dead before I'm ever thin enough for it to matter, so I'm making the videos anyway. Maybe someone will enjoy them or learn from them. I'm uploading two videos of my five ball practice even as I write this. And here is a photo of me juggling on World Juggling Day 2010. And I also won a prize from the IJA website.

Juggling Event in Long Beach CA

On June 19, 2010 at El Dorado Park there is an event that combines World Juggling Day and Knit in Public Day. It's at an archery range. So I'm going to take my hoops, juggling equipment, archery gear and knitting supplies. There is a small fee to drive into the park. I think it's $7.00. Bring something to share at the potluck as there are no food booths. We are on our own. If you do not live near Long Beach, CA you can check the IJA website for other World Juggling Day events near you.

Juggling Video of Me

Me juggling clubs /pins. Singles I didn't warm up first and it was stinging my hands. I definitely need to get some thicker skin going.

Sat. Juggling

It's Sat. and a beautiful day for juggling. Only it slipped my mind. And the sun is setting. But if I hurry I can get some tosses in. So see you.

Getting Ready For World Juggling Day 2010

Getting ready for World Juggling Day on June 19, 2010 with some deadly and dangerous teddy bear juggling.

Why juggle? It makes me feel joyful.  It relieves stress.  It makes me feel young again. It fulfills my circus fantasies. It makes me money. It's more interesting exercise than a lot of things. I get to play with toys. People laugh. I get to follow my bliss. People remember me. It fights against gender and age stereotypes. It helps me feel like I'm in show biz. I get labeled talented a lot. It improves my balance. It gets me out of the house. It's fun.

Back to Juggling

I really need to start juggling again. I feel flabby and lethargic. I'm not sure what happened to my neighbor's dog but I noticed the front lawn no longer has dog droppings all over it, so maybe I can actually get some hooping and juggling done out there. It's really the only convenient place I have to practice. My backyard is too small and I don't want to have to drive to a park every time I need to practice for 20 minutes. I want to hone my skills before world juggling day on June 19. That way maybe I can actually pass clubs with someone.

Tom Mills asked me to pass with him at the camping trip last weekend, but he was entirely too busy with the archery shoot and the atlatl competitions. That man could clone himself four times over and still not have enough of him to go around.

No More Plastic

Juggling lemons

After four days of rain, I'm ready to get outside and make the most of the sunshine and work on some new juggling stuff. I'm going to rejoin the SCA so I'd like to do things that are not made out of plastic. It's challenging because almost all commercial juggling equipment is made out of plastic. Balls of course can be made out of fabric or chainmail. No problems there. But clubs, rings, shaker cups, torches and so forth will be challenging.
