hEy JeStEr,Can't chat from my workstation but thought I'd give a heads up.Fire devil stick was my first fire toy. I love 'em. Not too many people get into them and so when you do them well most people are pretty responsive to them. How long have you sticked?And what is confest?

I first started doing devil sticks about 6 years ago and then 6 months later bought some wick to put on em. I also bought a fire stick at that stage, then a few months later got into the poi. devil sticks are probably my best in terms of skills but I love doing the poi and 2 small staffs because they are so versatile.Yeah I always get a great response when doin the devil sticks because they're not as common as sticks or poi, I think it might be because they have closer links to juggling, ie: no constant contactconfest is a cool hippy festival up on the Murray on new years and easter, there's always lots of twirlers and drummers there.seeya

Hi JeStEr, I a bity of an old hippy and have been going to confest since about 94. I've had some great times by the Murray river, especially at Moama. Confest https://www.dte.org.au/Confest
is hard to describe, but it changed my life. Decided to take up fire staff at Easter and ended up at HOP. Should have started ages ago. Not to worry, I hope to kick arse at New Years, see ya.

If we as members of the human race practice meditation, we can transcend our fear, despair, and forgetfulness. Meditation is not an escape. It is the courage to look at reality with mindfulness and concentration. Thich Nhat Hanh
