Firewalking
Dollar Photo Club

Hot coals

Burning fire

I walk across with fear

Walking them gives me true courage

True Test

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. tony robbins, the self-help guru, has folks walking a path covered in coals. scientists say it’s no real stretch. that’s the scientific, rationalistic belief. stoking up one’s courage to believe you can actually walk across it is another thing. I guess the lesson is to let go of one’s limiting beliefs. but at $4000-$5000 a pop with tony, I can wait.
