I would like to start this post by saying “i’m sorry” for all of you who feel like I’ve neglected you.
I changed countries (again), moved from UK (London) to Germany (Berlin).
In the past few months my husband and I didn’t know where we will live and I was a bit out of my game but now i’m back!
I am going back to train seriously and though I tried to maintain my power i didn’t really do anything artistic since May, so the next 2 months (starting week 2 of September) will be all about going back to train with my aerial acrobatics trainer, my contortion trainer and my lovely friend and trapeze partner.
I got Delbert L. Hall’s permission to post this article that he wrote on his website. This is for all of you aerialists:

If you have read much of anything that I have written over the last 30 years, you know that I do not like to say “don’t do that,” but rather, “if you do that, then this will be the result,” or “you must contend with such and such.” This same logic applies to rigging from trees, you can do it, but you must understand the forces and how to properly deal with them.
