@marisa_diamond had a blast teaching @thelivbits a bit of circus @circusharmony today...and we also got to catch up with our author friends there, Cynthia Levinson @cylevinson & Sanford Levinson. Their new “Fault Lines In The Constitution”, as well as Cynthia’s “Watch Out for Flying Kids” - about Circus Harmony & Peace Through Pyramids (for which we organized the Boston book launch in 2015), and all their books, make great holiday gifts! So do donations to the non-profit Circus Harmony. Help kids read AND fly!

We had the privilege of circus joy in Puerto Rico a few years back (that’s co-founder Marci...on volcanic rock), and hope that you’ll join us in helping the only AYCO/ACE recognized social circus program on the island to rebuild, so they can continue bringing circus joy and healing to their community: https://www.youcaring.com/educarecircusschooltherapycenterandevaluations-977608 #socialcircus#puertoricoselevanta#educare#circosocial#handstand#solidaridad#circus#ayco @americanyouthcircusorg

Did you know our co-founder Marci, SAG-AFTRA/AEA Actress, contorts in commercials, like this one w Kate McKinnon? https://www.ispot.tv/ad/A7yr/mastercard-masterpass-yoga . Because not every day can be a yoga pizza party with Kate McKinnon , but when you show up, some days are. #gratitude#circus#contortion#showup#actorslife
We all passed our #SAFD#SingleSword#SPT this weekend! Thank you & congrats to our amazing teacher Angie Jepson Marks, the legendary J Allen Suddeth for adjudicating, & all our colleagues/co-conspirators! Props to @JTTurnerActor for his recommended pass in BOTH unarmed and single sword, and to @marisa_diamond for playing the perfect Pan to her mama's ever-challenged Hook, and helping every step of the way (right into the mouth of the croc)!
