Fun Day Sunday

funday smileIf you’ve been here before then you know Sundays on my blog are all about wonder and smiles. In honor of mentally kicking back once in a while, Sundays are Fun Days! Each Sunday, visitors will find a fun, interesting, or unusual something here. I’m a nerd with a complex sense of humor and absurd wit. It could literally be anything.

Have you ever seen poi spinning or fire dancing? It’s my understanding this skill originates with the  Māori people of New Zealand. It consists of graceful dance movements enhanced by twirling lengths of rope or chain that have little blazing kerosene-soaked wicks at the ends. We’ve had dancers spin fire to our drumming and what a dramatic sight it is after dark. I’d love to learn how to spin fire. I have a practice set that is basically a pair of tennis balls on ropes. Alas, I’m not that graceful and my timing starts out ok but quickly falls apart. I’ve coshed myself in the head more than once. Practice makes perfect or just gives you a lumpy head. lol

Here are two interesting clips for today — the first with fire poi and the next with the gentler Buugeng.

I’m thinking Buugeng is safer than poi spinning. Though I could end up breaking my thumbs. Perhaps I’ll just stick with making the music so other people can dance.
