As a particular pattern or trick is juggled,
so the juggler may choose to throw a given ball
slightly higher or slightly lower, resulting in
a slight change to the exact time when the ball is caught.
A collection of small adjustments can lead to quite a
shift in the overall look and effect of the pattern,
and a substantial change can result in a different
Juggling Pattern entirely.
For example, a perfectly asynchronous shower can be
changed to a galloping asynchronous shower by making
the higher throw slightly lower, and the lower throw
slightly higher. Shifting the timing further will
end up in the synchronous shower. Carrying on even
further still takes us to the Half Shower.
Timing Variations can result in an otherwise mechanical
and uninteresting Juggling Pattern having more charm
than might otherwise expected, and such changes are often
subtle, elusive and unexpectedly effective.
