I met a small boy tonight while at work his name is Max.. He was about 10 years old, and full of zeal for that age.While I was doing my normal walk around contact juggling for people, I noticed his view turned from amazement, to disapointment. I walked over to his table and asked him why his face looked sad. He said , -I dont think I will be able to do that ever-.. As I began to tell him sure he could its just practice, he held up his left hand, which was missing a thumb. Apparently he lost it at an early age from an accident. This move is made for Max and anyone else who doesnt have all their fingers. Just to show that it can be done. As well as anything else you put your mind to. I will have the 3 ball version up when I get it taped

Awesome Talent! I'm moved by the amount of compassion and dedication the creation of this move represents. I'm getting a late start at age 35, but I purchased my first set of acrylics and the book last night. I never have been able to get that image of Bowie doing palmspins in Labyrinth out of my head...now I'm hooked. You're an inspiration to the rest of us Shifty! Thanks!

That's a really sweet thing to do, Shifty. So did this boy learn to cj? I really hope so. That's really, really sweet. I can't wait to see the 3B palmspin... and maybe some others you might have made up?
