12:28 am - Learning Fire – Fire Dancing-2
We had another instructor for this session – the previous instructor, who is better will be there for the remaining 4 lessons. Also, Aaron showed up, as well as another student, for a total of four students. I managed to learn another move and can do everything we've been taught except the backwards version of one move. I also discovered that some of the moves that I tried tonight caused the cords of the poi to scrape the second joint of my first finger on each hand, so the skin on each of those fingers will need to heal and I'll be wearing band-aids on those fingers to the next class. Becca once again excelled – Aaron had never done it before and while he was not excellent, he was close to my level by the end of the class. Of course, he's also had vastly more physical training that I have. In any case, clearly this is not something that I excel at. However, I do have a fair amount of determination. Also, as I mentioned in this post, practicing with my hands alone is by far the best way for me to learn a move – once my hands know the pattern, doing the same pattern while holding and swinging the poi is not all that difficult. In vivid contrast, Becca has a sense of the movement of the poi through space that I greatly envy.

Hey love, I have been watching this for some time and I think it's awesome that you are learning fire spinning. I am envious!
But I suspect it would be a bad sport for me, um...no depth perception = may hit self or people with objects on fire traveling at high velocity.

And normally, I can get behind that kind of activity, but it's probably better for everyone that I don't.
So, I will instead ask, when next I see you--make me fire? :)


I am also so not surprised that Becca has learned this faster. Becca was designed for plug-n-play mode with reality. :)
