On May the 22nd, 2010 Taizo, my father and I were going around the city to all of the thrift shops. Being late in the weekend all the good stuff was cleared out already, so we did not end up finding anything to interesting.
The last thrift shop we went to was Value Village on Capitol Hill, which is near Molly Moons and Cal Anderson park. We decided that ice cream would be a good idea and went to obtain some. When we arrived at Molly Moons the line went down to the corner, so we decided to wait. We headed into Cal Anderson park and were just starting to walk into the larger field portion of it when I said "there is a guy slacklining of there".
Of course no one was listening to me so I decided to walk over, people followed. On approaching I noticed a pile of juggling props including: a hat, golf club, golf ball, five clubs, a large amount of balls, and some other objects I don't care to mention. This got me excited and I went over to talk to the man. His name was Ryan and he had just recently moved to Seattle from California. He had run a smaller circus down in California and was a very good juggler. We talked about all the different groups and jugglers we knew of and then started to juggle and slackline together.
It was fun juggling with someone much more experienced than me for once because I got to learn new stuff from him instead of me teaching others, which is also very fun.
That day I learned to pass six clubs, do some five ball tricks, and three ball tricks, as well as other diabolo and slackline things. I am now trying to plan a meeting with Ryan at Folklife so we can juggle and possibly slackline if space permits.
