Plenty Of Trees

Ah, My Love For Trees

Those of you who don’t know, nature and me are the best of friends; period. I find harmony when I can sit in the middle of a forest and hear the birds chirp. Very different kind of setting compared to what I’m used to, spending a lot of time scanning through atlases to find my next traveling point or google searching “highest quality headset” in my best friends bachelor suite. That has been the past couple days anyways, on that note, me and Cory have decided to work on some electronic music together, he is a well known local dj¬†and I wanted to get my foot in the door with music production. Incredible guy, showing me the ropes a little bit but I’ll say one thing, this mans hand dexterity should be noted down early as he truly doesn’t get the recognition he deserves for the art he creates.

I bought my first set of POI, for those who read my previous post you guys are well aware of the fact that I have shown great interest in the art of fire play. Well I have recently begun my training with long socks from past ski trips filled with more socks! My first attempt at spinning of the poi I learned that you should begin practicing with soft objects… (tagged myself in the knee in a brute like manner). Lesson learned, taking it very slow and really doing my best to burn the flow into my central nervous system, slow and steady wins the race.

Getting introduced to electronic music and the production of it as well as in my spare time practicing the art of POI has really added some levels of excitement to my life; I am grateful for this. My mother should be in town in the next week and when she arrives I would like to be able to perform some sort of fire dance for her, sounds very different when I write it down but the reality of it is, I have the most supportive mother on this planet. My momma means the world to me and if you have a reason as to why you do the things you do I hope that making your momma proud is up there in the top three. This post can literally drag on for another two hours as I express my gratitude for my mother, but we’ll cut it off here that way I can say thank you for reading thus far and I look forward to sharing my POI experience with you all. It truly is an experience in itself, the flow that occurs is all feeling, there is no thinking; it’s beautiful.

Are you intrigued by fire play? I would love to see footage and or receive tips and pointers from you all. Any and all emails will be responded too as quickly as I possibly can. Email me here:
