When I was a little girl, my dad and mom took me to a circus and there was a girl...was flying, I thought it so wonderful. So, I mentioned it at this dinner party.So, when my 78th birthday came,this friend of mine brought me a ticket to go to Dave’s "Trapeze High school".I loved it.I was scared.anybody scared, I mean it’s normal to be scared because it’s out of your comfort zone.But oh, that’s kind of a wonderful feeling!So, I just started coming lots and Dave was very kind to me.You know, she’s strong and she listens and all of that, but she is still older than dirt. So, I was really cautious letting her do something new,not let her just go off and get excited and do her thing because she comes and she is excited and she wants to do it some more, you know.We have to ameliorate her excitement so she doesn’t hurt herself.Okay, honey.I started skating when I was eight years old.I was with an ice show,"Holiday on Ice" for 50-some years. When I was living in England,I was riding a horse and my life became involved with polo.I was on a man’s team and there were no other,at my time,there were not a lot of women.So, I had to prove myself as a woman that I worked hard and that they wanted me.I moved here.My husband died.I went through a very depressed couple of years.And then I met this great,young guy and then he was a rock climber.So, he said,"Have you ever done that?"And I, no, I hadn’t.So, we became partners in rock climbing and we did big stuff.And it’s really true that it does help.It just gets your brain thinking of about what you’re doing instead of where you are.I just was sad.I was just sad that I no longer had what I had.But I am doing something that is kind of fun,kind of impossible,kind of out of my comfort zone.But at the end of the day,I could sleep.And I am doing the impossible.I am flying on that trapeze and I never,in a million years,did I think that I would be able to do what I am doing there.I am flying.I am no different than anybody else.I’ve been blessed with good health,but I am hoping though that people see me and say, "Well,why can’t I do that if she did it?"
