I love the circus! When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a trapeze flyer.  I thought they were sooooo cool.  Flying through the air without a net.  Basically…amazing.  Now as an adult, when I see the crazy daring performers, I always wonder at what point do they decide that they are good to go without the net?
