Thinking Outside of the Garment Bag- Throwing Fire













Every Thanksgiving my cousin Gabe puts on a Fire Show for the whole family.

He has been throwing fire for over 7 years.

It is a beautiful dance. Gabe blows me away with his talent and agility every time I see him preform.

He does this for fun, and art form, a craft that he has definitely perfected.

It is beautiful to see how calm his face is. ...or it could be from all the food we just ate.

Hope your weekend was rad!

beautiful photos! yes, i too love how calm his face is. what a lovely thanksgiving tradition! just hope it doesn't catch on across america.. can you just see it? 200 million households, throwing fire.. 99% of them not nearly as talented and agile as gabe! ; )

this is perfect flame throwing music btw!

had a lovely, small, low-profile thanksgiving dinner for two (plus one very grateful cat) with a turkey so small it was a chicken.


hope your weekend was rad, too! xoxo
