Another beauty shot by @aerial_gera. Missing my trapeze...her name is Beatrix if you were wondering. #tbt

Simple entry into belay...second video is how to get in it and how to fall out of it 🤦🏼‍♀️ #whoops

When life hands you something resembling a trapeze...

I played with this silk climb I’ve seen all over the place, including the amazing @mrwillaerialist, and found a cute lil shape. Go check out his page! He’s such a creative aerialist!

Rehash of an old sequence. I’m not sure who I first saw do the straddle split to what I’ve been calling the “purse strap” but I totally fell in love with it and the endless possibilities from it. This was my first time playing with the “purse strap” having lots of slack.

In B&W this photo kinda looks like disembodied limbs. 📸 Nancy Behall. #aloftcommunion

I’m a tree! #nofilter

Translated from a ropey move. Full disclosure: this is wicked hard for me to get into. Had to stretch a lot before hand and try many times.

*Sound on* I go through phases of being a trick chaser and an arty farty noodler. Today I chased the trick. I must have done this nearly 30 times before feeling ok with it. And that’s just today, I’ve had my eye on it for a long time, but I always put it on the bottom of my to do list. By this one, my best attempt of the day, I had a huge sigh of relief! I know it’s silly, but getting this trick kind of makes me feel like a real vertical aerialist. As I always do when I unlock aerial achievements I reflect on what I’ve done to get here. I’m still progressing, albeit slower than while I was in circus school. Everyone has a different journey. Maybe to some this trick was really easy to get. My point is keep moving forward, keep trying, keep discovering. Also I’ve been listening to a lot of @the_artist_athlete podcast while being banished to the states awaiting my visa and it’s such a good resource! It’s definitely made me look at myself/ my practice/ my goals in a better light. Check it out!

Chasing waterfalls...I know I know I had to say it though.

For the past four days I’ve been deep in the Hiawatha National Forest in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with my mom. She’s brave and adventurous and a seasoned outdoors-woman. We’ve hiked part of the North Country Trail, biked through dirt trails of Grand Island (which is a 7 mile long thickly wooded and rustic national recreation island slightly off the coast of Munising, MI.), climbed rocks jutting out of Lake Superior, and laughed and sang the whole way. Last night we bathed in a small lake at dusk and this morning we woke up to a huge down pour. We’re heading back down state extremely soggy, but happy. #puremichigan
