The last couple of times we have had kids come up to juggle, there have been a couple of young ones who couldn’t really get it. I think everyone still had a good time, but I wonder if having scarves would help. I think that the main reason we really don’t have scarves is a stubborn mindset of wanting to do things our way. We never used scarves to learn, so why should anyone else. I still kind of agree with the idea that learning how to juggle is learning how to make good throws and scarves don’t help with that. However sometimes when I am watching over the chaos that is our “juggling workshops”, I can’t help but wonder if scarves might be more practical especially for someone who is only going to practice for 10 minutes.
Somehow K Anything has become a place where I write down things that I want to try, and the newest thing I want to try is juggling scarves. First, I’ll have to get some and try them out to see what I think of them. Then I will bring them along for the after-show juggling workshop to see if they help any of the kids. Finally, I think I will try to come up with a real juggling routine with scarves. I don’t know what exactly that means yet. I know I want it to be interesting and impressive, not just goofy. I don’t know if it will ever actually make the show. Maybe I will be able to come up with something good enough for my Fourth of July act. I know the Fourth of July act is suppose to be a surprise, but there is a pretty good chance that Darren won’t read this and an even better chance that he won’t believe that I will actually use scarves for my Fourth of July act. So even though I am writing this down right now, Darren will still be surprised if I actually do it.
