Marty, nice little storage box. How long have you been juggling?

Only about 8 years. I don’t know any tricks, but some day.

Great little box. I could never juggle like that intentionally!

Nice little box! I’ll bet those 1/8” inserts were a pain to fit precisely, huh?

By the way, when I learned to juggle, I used tennis balls, which would bounce all over the place when I dropped them, which was all the time—your bean bags would have been a lot better!

But then a funny thing happened—I went from not being able to keep the balls in the air, to all of a sudden being able to do it. It was like a light switch turned on—I mean it was almost instantaneous. I guess it was when I stopped thinking about it, and just felt it, if that makes any sense.

Thanks.

Learning to juggle with balls that can bounce would certainly be a challenge. I know what you mean regards to the learning process. Everyone probably goes through the same process – very hard until something clicks and then it works.
