Old Buddies & Knife Throwing

Years ago I taught juggling at the Agoura Renaissance Faire with Adam Reid. I recently found him on Facebook, and I'm happy to hear he is still juggling at Renaissance Faires. I, on the other hand, have done nothing very interesting with juggling in a long time. I never quite reached the skill level to do Renaissance Faire shows, and I feel there is still a lot of sexism in the world of juggling.

But that doesn't mean I want to give up juggling. I just need to find my passion again. My juggling stuff is at the foot of my bed. I should pick it up and use it sometimes.

I'm learning a new circus skill: Knife throwing.  I've been doing it in the SCA for years at the occasional thrown weapons events, but I never had my own stuff, so I ordered my very own throwing knives. I tested them out yesterday and in one round, I stuck all 3.

Since Halloween is coming up, I've been gathering together witchy things and I took some photos today. Hope you like.

Black and Gold Fan

I love this rainbow knife, but to get 3 I'd have to order 3 sets.

I got a medium set of knives and a small set of knives.

I got the fan, the grotesques, and the roses all at dollar type stores, but in different years.

Hear no evil grotesque.
