Flying High

The trapeze has come to my neighborhood. Just a few blocks away from me in the old Convention Center parking lot, Trapeze School has set up shop. It reminded me of that Sex and the City episode when Carrie tried it and was having a hard time letting go and grabbing the hands of the instructor. I think it became a metaphor for her ability to let go of something in life or being able to trust or something...I forget. All I know is that I'm amazed by anybody who dares to do things like that. I'm a little odd when it comes to fear. I'll walk around by myself after midnight in DC but I won't even get on a roller coaster. So, I'm hoping some fabulous city girl will give it a try and report back. It must be very popular because according to the web site, classes are filling up fast.

I am giving it a try with some friends in a few weeks! Will let you know how it goes :)

I am SO like you - no fear walking in a big city at night, but zero interest in roller coasters - the trapeze thing would be neat to try, but I really would not enjoy the lead-up to it (ladder to tiny platform etc) - plus I have had many health problems for 2 years, so the last thing I need is to go injure myself on top of everything else.

Ok, sorry for the long comment - I will revisit the idea later this year.

Stephanie- glad to hear it. Please let me know how it goes!
City Girl- I'm with you! Sounds like you should stay away from the trapeze for now. We want to keep you healthy!

I think of that SATC episode everything I hear about trapeze lessons. My friend did it in NYC and absolutely loved it!
