Circo Kernow Students 2011



We've been blown away by Hugo & Co...

                                           
They've been studying circus performance skills for only 1 or 2 sessions over 10 weeks...
And we've picked out a selection of the best photos...
         
The group are mainly aged between 14 & 18...
And they also learned how to put up the big top & prepare for a show.


They each tried all the activities & discovered what they prefer to do...

We've known some of the kids for a while, so it was great to see what they have achieved...

Even those we didn't know still managed to amaze us...

The group have also learnt Makulele...

And Capoeira...

Which was fun to watch...



Hugo's chosen skill was mime...


                                          
We were surprised by his confidence & of course we had no idea what to expect...

                                        
But we have been very impressed!

With all of them...

Rowan is 14...

And these 2 were wonderful...

Jake is climbing down the rope...

Just stunning...

Amazing...

And brilliant!

Emma was also the girl on the silk rope...

                                           
The Hula Hoop girls wowed us all!

Then the finale...

And taking a bow...

You can see the group performing in the middle of Truro, where they appeared as statues to advertise their show. 

Enjoy!

Looks it was a fun evening for the audience and the performers. I liked Hugo's costume, he really looked the part.
Thank you all!

Hugo's had a wonderful time at the circus school. He's quite keen continuing with mime & statue work...

Watch this space!

Nettles

Our garden yesterday.
Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now.
This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.
~ Edward Thomas ~
Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem!

Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine...


Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food.
Nettles are rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.



Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx
