Now Playing: Men of Station
Today during a production of FoodPlay I was an idiot and literally fell off the stage. It's actually really embarrassing. The show went on as planned and luckily I am basically unhurt. Either I am really lucky, have really good instincts, or am so well trained (thanks movement instructors) that i fell in a way that minimalized bodily harm. I fell about four feet in a position where (my co-actor told me) my feet were higher than my head. I landed on my back and then reached around with my left hand to break the rest of my fall. I didn't hit my head and the only pain I have is in my left wrist.
Suffice it to say that I am going to take a day or two off of juggling until I feel 100% again. This is definitely one for the books - falling off stage. I could've sworn there was floor there when I put all my weight on thin air. Ugh.
Anyway, legally download "Men of Station" by 13 & God. It's an oldie but a goodie from Erik Aberg's Springtime Manipulation. The original - the good one. Who knows if you can still find it anywhere?
