Blog is in limbo

Only 9 posts since June 2008. Does this mean I'm retired from blogging about juggling? Time will tell.

The absence of adequate indoor juggling space renders late fall through early spring non-juggle-able due to cold temperatures. I've got to go very far out of my way to find indoor space to juggle 5 balls. Basically I need to juggle in a subway station.

You can't play baseball without an adequate field... you can't juggle without an adequate space. I guess that's life. Go with the flow.

That is a tough spot to be in. Maybe it's just time to work on contact stuff, or to get really really good with three balls. It's sad to think you'd stop all together!

Good advice Glenn. I get some 3-4 ball practice, but it's the 5 ball and high throw stuff that really excites me.

Well, you still have some great content here in your old posts. Maybe you can just start twittering.

Thanks for all your great content.

We all hope you come back soon.

I know that jugglers of Seoul choose subway station as a practice place.
And luckily, Busan's temperature isn't more colder than Seoul.
So i currently practice out of door

I was going to make 4b sequence.
But i couldn't make it. because i only was full of passion and lacked of effort.
I had to practive 4b two hour a day. If i have done then i would show you it.Instead i'm practicing an interesting trick at the moment. when i've perfectly played it, i show you it.
By the way, Don't you play juggling at all?
i don't find your post about juggling after last post.

I have not had a chance to juggle since the weather got really cold in November. I don't have a facility to go to. I tried the YMCA, but they told me I am not allowed to juggle there. Korea doesn't have hardly any indoor gymnasiums. So I'm limited to juggling outdoors in Spring, Summer, and Fall.

Hopefully now that the weather is nice you can start juggling again.

At 3:46 PM, Blogger Ed Provencher said...

Oh yeah. I've been juggling.

Hi Ed,
My boyfriend loves juggling. We are currently in Korea. Where can I go and find a decent set for him? He would love it.

Check out the information here:

The shop is in Seoul near Sadang St. Take exit #7 and walk for about 10 minutes. Look for a unicycle attached to the third floor of a building.

Where are you? You are missing out on all the fun!

Hi Gregory. I still juggle for shits and giggles from time to time, but I don't invest as much into it anymore. Sometimes I play "Lie Detector" with my English students. We all write three facts about ourselves, one of which is a lie. Students have to ask and anwers lots of questions from each other and then decide which facts are lies. The students often think the fact that I can juggle five balls is a lie even when I also say I've been shot by a gun in the US! Getting shot in the US is more believeable that being able to juggle five balls! haha
