Thought some of you might find this amusing:I was walking down the street last Friday swinging my practice poi in a reverse weave... on my way to my usual practice spot, when I got a fairly typical "Hey, what are those?" I responded with a fairly typical explanation of what "those" are, exchanged smiles and handshakes, and proceeded along my merry way. A few minutes later, the guy who had asked me what I was doing came running after and asked me if I could stop for a moment to be in the amateur movie he was shooting for film school... entitled "ObiDonQuixote"... the tail of a crazed man and his sidekick who think they are......Jedi Knights......wandering present day Seattle. So... I spent ten minutes spinning while I guy in brown bathrobe and baggy pants batted at my poi with a toy light saber.Go figure.At least I had been polishing my windmills...

Come faeries, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame.

I was twirling with practice poi one day in the botanical gardens, overlooking Sydeny harbour, and a group of 40 school kids aged about 7/8 came along the footpath.I put on a little show for them and got gasps and applause. Maybe I've helped to create the next generation of twirlers who will watch that movie!

Care of other people's approval and you become their prisoner.Live fully, Rave wholly.Fluid are the movements of my strings...
