Let’s keep in on topic.
I just got my CLYW Arctic Circle today. Amazing, very smooth. I think I may like the Chief better, but hey, this is VAST improvement over the Canvas. It’s like in between the Avalance and the Chief. I need to give it more time. Since my Chief is with a friend now across the country, I will have to settle for my new Yogi Arctic Circle for the time being.
So, yes, I’m happy with this yoyo. But that got me to thinking. There’s things better than just simply OWNING the yoyo.
One of the things I like about the meets I go to or the meets I attend or the contests I go to is SHARING my yoyos with others. I find yoyo’ers in general to be rather respectful and I don’t really have to worry about stuff walking away without someone asking for something first. The joy of letting someone try something they normally might never be able to try, or to try something before they buy so they can make an informed decision.
It reminds me of what I do sound for stupid-cheap rates. I got the gear, what good does it do me sitting in my garage or sitting in my truck not being used? Audio gear, like yoyos and other sporting goods, are meant to be taken out and USED. Since my audio gear is paid for in full, I have no overhead outside of insurance, diesel fuel and the occasional bit of maintenance. Bring the gear out and let other people take advantage of both the audio gear and my skills that go with it. Similar, why hoard the yoyos, why not let other people try them? I mean, the most I can ever use at once ideally is 2 at a time. That leaves a LOT available for others to try. And if someone wants to try the one I’m throwing, I can just swap that yoyo for something else in the collection.
Sharing. Definitely one of the keys to my happiness. Bring happiness to others. Do your part a little each day!
