New year's Eve hooping
I really feel like I've been advancing lately. I've been pushing myself with experimentation and my flow feels like it's getting... flowier? Is that a word? Anyways, here's my last hooping of 2010. what a year it's been! I'm currently working on a one-year video summary, but I'll post that this weekend on my "hoopiversary".
On New Year's day I had an amazing session while visiting some friends in Asheville. It was cold and rainy but it was so awesome. I got to watch Jess as she experienced her second day in the hoop, and seeing her joy at putting her arms in seriously made me want to tear up. Her husband James spins poi and it was fun getting inspiration from a completely different set of skills. Though his expertise is in guitar repair, my own husband even hooped for a while, and I got ideas for moves as he "practiced" flinging the hoop around in his own unique, un-influenced way. He helped me come up with a move that I'll post video of in a bit.
So here's to 2011, with many more hoop-ventures to come!
