I just learned that we have lost our lease on our space. It's a creative home for a vibrant community of aerial artists and it's both the source of a lot of my income (as I teach there) but also the most magical place I've ever been a part of. It's an underground theater, it's my sewing studio, it's my inspiration, it's my playground, it's my party. I recently became a partner in the space and it feels a little bit like something was ripped out of my heart and trampled on. I can only hope that we find another space soon, something even bigger, even better, with even more potential for growth. This was my home in uncountable ways, and now it's going to be gone.
So I had a few beers yesterday with my best friend, aerial partner and business partner and I don't give a f*ck. I will remember that afternoon in the sunshine, mourning together, and celebrating the future, the vaguely terrifying future, for the rest of my life.
Goodbye. I loved you more than I ever thought I could love anything that wasn't a person.
