I'm alive!

And I got very sick and bowed out of 30/30.  I hosted an indoor hoop jam this week.  It was a bust.  How do I freaking gain more interest?  I'm trying my best...maybe.  I'm feeling discouraged.  I want to change the lives of Kentuckians with hoops and other props.  How do I achieve this?

Other than that, I went to help with 4-H this week.  It was their annual "reality store" for 8th graders.  I took my poi in because obviously hoops are not fun.  I've sorta got the butterfly for a few moments till the bang.  There was some down time. So I started practicing my butterflies.  I had a few kids ask me and others asked the other adults because they were scared to talk to me.  At lunch, I had a whole group crowding around me to talk about it.  At one point, a couple of boys walked up to me and said, "Ma'am, are you a performer?"  Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.   Squeee squeee squeeee!  One day I hope to be!

So I learned a reel today but I can't do a two beat weave.  If I taped a video of the things I'm having problems with, does anyone know enough poi to figure out my errors?  I really want to spin poi but it's hard.  Just like hooping was.

Maybe poi and contact juggling will be my big winter things. So far, so good, I haven't gotten anything flow art related for my birthday.  I don't expect a surprise from John when he gets home either.

I didn't get anything done on my vacation. Although I did get to go on a corn maze and many haunted houses.
