    And I'd Be Twirling 100 Hula Hoops!

    I love the Cirque du Soleil. And Chinese acrobats. When I see the acrobats twirling in the air, it makes me feel free as if I were twirling with them. I also love to see all the amazing things that the human body can do. It makes me feel strong, even though I can't do those...
