Not for the squeamish
Hanging upside down by your feet and catching ropes by your feet can take it's toll.
One can not miss a day of soaking ,scrubbing,pumicing, sanding and lotioning one's little piggies. When it is freezing cold it is enough that you are walking around without any pants on.The skin on my feet takes a good beating! However the pain is a happy pain for I am working..doing trapeze and silks and spinning by my teeth for a living.What joy,what rapture.As Trudy Luvas said, "performing is a privledge".How lucky to go through life and to perform live art.
