    I used to take flying trapeze lessons at the Toronto School of Circus Arts.

    http://www.torontocircus.com

    It was a lot of fun, although I wasn't very good (at 6'4" and being all arms & legs, I kind of looked like Grover from Sesame Street calling for "Froggie Baby" to come & get me down). I did learn to perform a couple of tricks adequately though. Unfortunately I suffered some injuries to my shoulders (bad technique on my part) which has never fully healed, and to my knees (due to weak ass muscles -- it's a long story), so I had to give it up. Still, it was a lot of fun. Maybe one day I'll try it again.

    I also wanted to try the silks, which I was told I would look good doing because of my long legs. Unfortunately I never got to try that (as apparently it was really tough).

    As I was posting this, a good friend of mine, and the one who got me involved in Cirque Skills died. I just wanted to take a time to remember Angel as my inspiration and my role model in this skill. He has shown me to live life to fullest and do what makes you happy. He passed away doing what he loves and I am sure if I could talk to him, he would make jokes about the way he died -- he has an amazing sense of humor. Another Angel is in heaven.

    Here is the story:

    Life is so fragile. Cherish every moment of it with your loved ones and friends.
