Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I began juggling a little over four years ago. I began with Contact Juggling, a type of juggling that involves taking one or more balls and rolling them around your body. A great example, and my personal favorite video, is Elements. Another great video is JCJC.

Now that you've been wowed by contact juggling, I hope you want to learn. By the best resource, and the way I taught myself without knowing anyone else in person who did it, is ContactJuggling.org. You can find everything you'd need to know on that wiki. Another great resource is the .org Forum, where you can talk to, connect, and learn from other Contact Jugglers. With these resources, and a ton of practice, you can amaze everyone with your contact juggling, and have fun doing it!

Now, "a ton of practice" is bolded above for a reason. Contact Juggling, like any form of Juggling, takes hours and hours of practice, failure, and patience. Along with Juggling, Patience is a skill that you will learn from juggling (I know I learned it), and I believe that Patience is an extremely useful for Social Innovation, and life in general.

As a note, the most common excuse I hear people say for not learning some type of juggling is, "I don't have the coordination." Coordination is a skill. It can be learned and improved. One way of doing this is through juggling!

Good luck! Learn Patience! Don't be Discouraged!

If you need help, want to learn more, etc. Don't hesitate to ask me ore post on the forum there.

I've always wanted to learn to juggle...

He makes it look so natural - although it has to be so difficult.

Definitely recommend this. I learned about some very important obstacles I didn't really know about before when I learned to juggle three objects.

One of things I found fascinating was there seemed to be a turning-point: once I got past it, nothing could stop me except myself. It's not the same as having it told to you, though. I think it's something that has to be experienced firsthand, especially when attempting to learn something new.

I learned juggling from the Klutz book that came with cubes of cloth-encased, crushed walnut shells. It only took a few days, and that was just a few minutes every now and then. Long, tiring durations aren't really necessary, it's the quality of the practice that matters. However, I've always wanted to do more contact juggling. I'm glad to have this reminder. :-)

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
