Becoming an Acrobat again in my fifties is now a huge part of my identity in the world. Equally as significant, if not more so, is my identity as a mother whose son is incarcerated. In a few weeks, I’ll be taking a week long Acro training that is centered on Social Justice. The fact that this training combines my two greatest passions in life feels miraculous and important. Week 1 of the pre-course work involves posting a visual of various facets of my identity and whether they provide social advantage or makes me part of a typically targeted group. It's been interesting to notice my discomfort in claiming my identities and which ones I'm willing to share versus what I choose to keep private. Noticing how vulnerable I feel in contrast to the advantages I have is also enlightening. Anyway... Here I am in a pie chart!
