NIGHTCAP 06/08/11

Where do you put your efforts? I put most of mine into the Trapeze. Only place I really feel free is soaring above the screaming crowds, a striped shirt on my breast and a sword in my teeth. I never do anything fancy. No hanging by the toes or closing the eyes. Just simple sitting on the trapeze bar, both hands securely gripping the ropes. Not too fast, not too slow. Just a steady, reasonable rocking back and forth while repeating to myself: “It will be OK, It will be OK.”

If people want to pay money to be locked in a room for 8 hours while I do this, so be it. It’s the very definition of Free Enterprise.
