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?"
当我还是个小女孩的时候,我爸爸妈妈带我去看马戏,有一个女孩…在飞翔我想,这太精彩了,我在这个晚宴上提到了它。所以,当我的78岁生日来临时,我的一个朋友给我带了一张去戴夫的“空中飞人高中”的票。我爱死它了。我当时很害怕。谁都害怕,我的意思是,害怕是正常的,因为它超出了你的舒适区。但是,这是一种美妙的感觉!所以,我刚开始经常来,戴夫对我很好。你知道,她很坚强,会倾听,但她年龄很大了。所以,我真的很小心让她做些新的事情,所以,我非常谨慎地让她做一些新的事情,让她掉不下来,而又兴奋地做这件事情,她来了,她很兴奋,她想做更多,你知道。我们必须减轻她的兴奋,以免她受伤。好吧,亲爱的。我八岁时就开始滑冰了。我参加了50多年的冰上表演“冰上的假期”。当我住在英国的时候,我骑马,我的生活开始与马球有关。我是男队的,没有其他女性队员,在我那个年代,没有很多女性队员。我必须证明我是一个努力的女人,他们需要我。我搬到这里来了。我丈夫死了。我经历了非常沮丧的几年。后来我遇到了一个很不错的年轻人,他是个攀岩者。他说,“你以前做过吗?”“我没有。”所以,我们成为攀岩的合作伙伴,我们做了大量的工作。这确实有帮助。它只会让你的大脑思考你在做什么,而不是你在哪里。我只是很难过。我只是为我不再拥有我所拥有的而感到难过。但我在做一些有趣的事,一种以前不可能做的事,离开我的舒适区。一天结束的时候,我就睡觉。我在做以前不可能做的事。我是空中飞人,我从来没有想过做这些事情。我在飞翔。我和其他人没什么不同。我身体一直很好,我希望人们看到我后会说:“好吧,她都能做,我为什么不能做呢?”
