Posted:As Valentines Day approaches I thought Id regale my friends and fellow posters with an amazing but true tale of romance and love. I know that some of you know the story already but its a good one and Im sure you wont mind sitting though it again... Once upon a time through the magic of Home of Poi and the generosity of our host Malcolm, I met many wonderful friends. Directly and indirectly HoP has changed my life. It introduced me to fire. It exposed me to a world that I would have never seen before. HoP led me to Pele whose friendship started it all for me, and Nomad who I still owe a favor to for lending me his poi for my first burn. HoP allowed me to meet my close and wonderful fire friends in New York City whom have now formed a mellow fire troupe and spend most of my weekends. If this had been all, Id still be indebted to this silly little website for all the joy it has brought me.But theres just a bit more. As some of you may have guessed, Ive fallen passionately, tenderly, and deeply in love with the most wonderful woman I have ever met. You all know her as Cassandra, and yes, we met on HoP. As fate would have it were thousands of miles away from each other but love conquers all. A few months ago, posts led to emails, emails to phone calls, and phone calls led to a wonderful Christmas together in Paris. Sure enough, my sweet little fire twirler will be blessing me with a visit this Valentines Day for a full week of fire twirling and romance. What about the future? Weve already got plans for vacations and summers and soon enough my little raspberry will be joining me in the Big Apple. After that its up to us Who knows what the future holds, but Im sure its beautiful.Dont worry kids, we wont clog up the boards with too much PDA. Thats what emails, phone calls and cross Atlantic visits are for.

Occasionally we have an I cant believe we met on HoP! moment and giggle. I guess you never really know when youll meet your princess, for me it was this little gray and black website buried deep within the matrix.On behalf of my sweet Cassandra and I, a big public THANK YOU to all of those who contribute the warmth, friendship and love which drew us both to this board. Both our friends on here, and those who just add to the positive environment, have allowed HoP to become a valuable resource, outlet, escape, and community.Love to all those whove given us love and friendship, a Happy Valentines day to friends, families and lovers across the globe, and a big smooch to my sweetie.Oh yeahAnd they lived happily ever after.


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.
