POST (10) "CYR WHEEL": Nick Steward's performance epitomizes the phrase "Poetry In Motion."

______________________________

 

The Cyr wheel is an acrobatic apparatus that consists of a single large ring made of aluminum or steel with a diameter approximately 4 to 6 inches taller than

the performer. The performer stands inside the Cyr wheel and grasps

its rim, causing it to roll and spin gyroscopically while performing

very complex acrobatic moves in and around the rotating wheel.

______________________________

I HAD NEVER EVEN HEARD OF A CYR WHEEL UNTIL RECENTLY AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. JUST THINK OF THE HOURS UPON HOURS THAT WENT INTO DEVELOPING THE SKILL AND COORDINATION IT TAKES IN ORDER TO PERFORM THIS ROUTINE!

 

ENJOY

NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU WATCH THIS ROUTINE YOU ARE STILL AMAZED BY NICK'S INTERACTION WITH THE WHEEL.

 COMMENT SECTION

 

I interviewed and hired a blue cow (see picture below) with a one of a kind attitude! Her name is Sally, although she says "sassy" is what most people call her...and I can understand why.

 

She recently arrived in the USA from a very tiny country called Kows'r'blu. In fact it is so tiny...that no one seems to know where it is located. Sally says its' one claim to fame is a small population (or herd) of blue cows which are not found anywhere else in the world. She says that makes her very rare and special! And I might add...seems to be the main cause of her attitude.

 

Sally has agreed to manage the "Comment Section" of my blog. She will get paid by commission based strictly on the tally of comments for that months' blog post. She seems to think that her attitude will be a big help in reaching that goal. And I can only imagine that it certainly will.

    As I watch this beautiful video I get caught up in the sensation of movement as the wheel spins...
    ...As I watch I can almost feel the way it must feel to the performer being at one with the sphere that goes where he takes it, or does he go with the sphere as it takes him? Being at one with each other is a marvel to watch but one cannot help but wonder how their blending together is made to look so effortlessly simple...Tis Eye Candy!
