Growing up, my birthdays were rarely big celebrations. My birthday hits so close to the beginning of the school year that the classroom cupcake policy was never in place and friends weren’t reconnected with from the long summer break. As an adult I haven’t done much to celebrate other than go to my mom’s house (this year we went out for Chinese), and have a day to myself. I often go for a long bike ride or draw at a museum. This year I decided to go to the circus.
Although I loved all the acts, especially anything hanging from the ceiling and the amazing pole dancer, my favorite act of the night was Luisina Rosas on the German Wheel. As a child my parents gave me stilts, a pogo stick, juggling set and a unicycle but I never thought to ask for German Wheel lessons.
