So I decided to take a chance and sign up for WordPress’s “Photo 101” challenge — basically, to post a picture a day that aligns to a theme that is assigned daily. Hopefully it gets me back to writing a bit more and also helps me devote some time to my photography. We’ll see how it goes (knowing me, this challenge probably means I will post 14 pictures with 14 themes in a single day). I’m hoping to actually make a proper go out of it (no iPhone photos), but I know that’s ambitious. Still, I have to start somewhere, so here I go!
As I referenced in my last post, in December I was diagnosed with a tear of my shoulder labrum. As a result, I could no longer teach flying trapeze, train as a flying trapeze artist or practice yoga. The medical recommendation? Surgery.
Obviously, surgery and the six month (minimum) recovery period is not an option, so I took a chance on a different kind of treatment that I will write more about later. Long story short, today was the first day that I was medically cleared and able to fly again. Obviously, that would mean taking it easy and not being too ambitious, but still. Today, I swung from a trapeze bar for the first time in almost three months. And it was fabulous.
The fact that today’s theme is “Home” is quite appropriate. Going back to the trapeze school where I train, teach, socialize, have an amazing community of friends, colleagues and students, help people overcome major fears and challenges was like going home.
I can’t wait to do it again. Trapeze school: see you Wednesday. Photo challenge: see you tomorrow.
