What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Shena Tschofen on the Cyr Wheel

I have a friend (okay, a friend of a friend) who announced on Facebook his 2016 new year’s resolution is to learn the Cyr wheel. Of course, being inquisitive (read: nosy), I had to do a little research so I knew what he was talking about. Wow, am I ever glad I did.

The lovely, talented, and ambitious Mister Hamilton is an accomplished performer (circus, sideshow, and other), and he’s in great physical condition, but I’m still in awe. This is some really strenuous, difficult, beautiful work! I can’t wait to see how his training progresses. I’m sure he’s going to be great!

I used to make New Year’s resolutions and announce them to anyone who’d listen. Then I realized that my (inevitable) failure was just making January and February (which is about how long it would take me to forget the resolutions) even more miserable than they would have been. So now, every year, my resolution is the same. To do my best to make myself and everyone around me happier. That I can do!

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  1. I’ve tried and then quickly surrendered to my inadequacy.
    Did you notice the chair appearing in the ceiling in the Rachel Salzman video? Nice touch.

  2. I have never heard of such a thing let alone seen one in operation but crikey that is a skill and a half. I can barely hoola hoop.
