Lughnasadh

I vanished from the internet! Pardon the quiet months, good friends on the web, but life has taken a turn for the adventurous, and you simply would not believe the places I’ve been and things I’ve seen in the last two months. To simplify things, I’ll make a (vauge) list of locations:

  • Dublin, Ireland
  • Galway, Ireland
  • Inishmore, Ireland
  • Paris, France
  • Berlin, Germany
  • Santa Cruz, CA
  • San Luis Obispo, CA
  • Phoenix, AZ
  • Tucson, AZ
  • Austin, TX
  • New Orleans, LA
  • Dallas, TX
  • Acrosanti, AZ
  • Flagstaff, AZ
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Sacramento, CA

And a number of other fascinating places in between! Touring with the circus has been phenomenal, and I am currently embarking on learning my newest circus discipline – swimming. …Wait, swimming? Yes, I am training to perform under-water as a mermaid.

Aerial acrobatics classes are also starting up again at the Vagabond Ballroom this week and continuing until a brief pause for Burning Man (where Sasha & I will be dancing with Fire Euphoria Conclave again this year).

La Boutique Obscure Vespertine Circus shows are scheduled to begin again in October (on the 3rd Friday), and we already are lining up guest acts for the upcoming shows. Oh Oakland, how I have missed you.

Much to my delight, I now have shorter hair – pictured below (deal with it, photographers) and feel generally refreshed, inspired, and educated by my recent travels.

I feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to go so far with such fantastic people by my side, and am already daydreaming about the next Vespertine Circus tour. 15 shows, 5 workshops, lots of whiskey, 2 days of street-performing, and over 4,800 miles later, we’re home safe and sound.
