|South Florida Guy Eating Fire|
This year I chose to purchase a season pass to the Florida Renaissance Festival. There are several performers who eat fire - some only feet away from my camera. I've seen some dozen or so exhibitions in the four weekends I've attended the festival. After a little soul searching, I decided I wanted to take the leap and follow my dreams. Now where to find a qualified teacher.
I'm sure you have some questions.
Am I crazy? - Just a little.
Is the fire hot? - Hot as fire - the cold stuff has not yet been invented.
Did it hurt? - I stuck burning hot fire on a stick in my mouth so yeah, pretty much.
Will I do it again? - What, are you kidding? I'm shopping for a kit right now.
I am hooked. I don't know if I will ever be at a performing level but after several hours of intense training, I managed to transfer a flame to my tongue then light another torch with the flame coming out of my mouth. That is certainly a show stopper at any family gathering. Huge thanks to all the performers that inspired me and a gigantic heap of appreciation to Jana who enabled me.
