First Five


My collegemate Heather, posted this the other day on her Facebook page, and I think it’s brilliant, so I’m picking it up.

The first five (5) people to respond to this post* will get something made by me.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations so please read carefully:

  1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make. What you get is what you get.
  2. What I create will be just for you.
  3. It’ll be done this year (2009).
  4. I will not give you any clue what it’s to be. It will be something made in the real world and not something cyber. It may be weird or beautiful.
  5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.
  6. In return, all you need to do is post this text into a note of your own and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond to your note. (If you want to put it up on Facebook, My Space, or your blog, whatever – just send me a link to somewhere.**)

*Click on “Add Your Comment” above this post. It won’t appear immediately on the site unless you’ve already registered as a commenter. Sorry about that one: I get a ton of spam, so I have to approve the comments before they post. But they all have timestamps, so I’ll know who came first!

**If you include a link to your site, I’ll post it. If you include a link to someplace private (like your super-secret lair under the sea), I’ll check it to see that your own 5 List is up but will omit it from your comment here. Everyone cool with that? Good.

    Yes, I love this idea!
    Also, somewhat unrelated, I came across and started reading this when I was looking for trapeze classes. Are you still doing that? Where did you originally?

      Hi Thea – I started with open flying trapeze classes at the San Francisco Circus Center (www. Usually Saturday and Sunday mornings, no training necessary. I don’t know how the quality of the flying program is there now, but they have an indoor facility and professional faculty.

      When I started training for the static trapeze full-time, I had the good luck to work with Elena Panova – she’s tough, excellent, a former pro ( Their acrobatics program is also world-class and feeds into the Montreal Circus School and Cirque du Soleil. Tons of cross-training options too.

      I stopped training when I took a couple of bad, peculiar falls that resulted in a permanent dislocation in my first rib. Hoping to head back in their direction this year…

      Definitely try it – even one time is a blast!
