Yeah, I know this is totally a repeat thread, but I don't care, I want my moment in the sun.

Tonight I spun fire poi for the first time. It was the single most magical thing I've ever done. I impressed the pants off the people throwing the party with some nice moves, which was a nice ego booster. They were really jealous that I could do the 5 bt, let alone the 7 bt weave. I had sooo much fun. I'll post pics tommorow.

wooo! I think he's uploading the pics now smile The existance of flamethrowers says that someone, somewhere, at sometime said "I need to set that thing on fire, but it's too far away."

Sweet! There is nothing like the sound, heat and intensity of spinning fire, especially the first time. Once you start, never stop.

You did a 7bt. on your first burn? How did you have the patience to advance that far without opening Pandoras box (fire)? "My skin is singed but it heals my heart and with glowing pride I'll wear my scars." -Davey Havok

I didn't do the 7 bt with fire, I did that with tails before it got dark. I only did simple stuff with fire (okay, so I did a lot of 5 beats and a few btb weaves).

I don't know how I had the patience, it really helped that I had parental units who wouldn't let me until now. tongue -James

hey, did your folks watch? did you prove that you were safe, which reassured them that you're competent and now they're completely happy with you using fire as much as you want?

Yeah, they were there, my mum took the pictures. They're not completely happy with me using fire "as much as I want" but now I can do fire under controlled circumstances if I get permision from them. But, hey, now that my wicks have been used, I can used them again and they'll be none the wiser devil (with proper safety measures, of course) -James
