Summer Winds Down

The title of my post is a bit of a misnomer, as anyone who lives in Florida can confirm.  Summer in Florida practically never ends; compared to most other States, our summer runs from mid-March to mid-November.  Halloween costume’s in Florida trend toward light fabrics and fewer masks simply because it’s too damn hot to go for anything heavy or fully covered.  Local climate notwithstanding, however, summer for parents comes to an end when children must return to school.  In the case of my family, that is next week, on Monday, August 20.  That means that the next three days (Wed – Fri) are my last days off from work before school starts.  The next three days will surely be filled with last minute adjustments and supply purchases and panic, but to in the middle of that Mrs. AP and I have inked in plans for some less stressful activities.

Several of our friends get together at one of the local beaches once a week to engage in some Poi play, and once a month the gathering becomes a massive jam.  What is Poi, you ask?  Short version, Poi is fire spinning.  Ever seen a luau, where the guys have the short sticks with ends on fire that they spin and put together complicated routines with?  That’s Poi.  For another, less often seen version, check out the following video:


We’re going to the big monthly jam tonight.  Over 100 people will be there.  There’s potential that some people we’ve been talking to online for awhile now will show up so we can finally meet face to face.  While Mrs. AP used to spin, she’s out of practice and won’t be joining the show, and I would need one heck of a teaching session to risk stepping into the circle with anything aflame, but we’ll watch and enjoy the show nonetheless.

Sometimes, it really does pay to live in the endless summer of Florida.


Stay SINful, friends.

    • It is pretty cool. Some people bring out LED balls instead of flaming balls; getting the two next to each other makes for some very cool looks. We did have fun, thank you!

    That sounds really neat. I would love to see something like that. I saw a really interesting fire eater once at a State Fair and I remember thinking it was really cool.

    • It was a good gathering. Over 100 people were there, and at one point a good 20 were spinning fire all at once. We had staffs, balls on chains, swords, fans, and nun-chucks all on fire at once. Very very cool indeed. I can’t wait to start learning.

    • Boy did we! I danced to the drums, practiced with some harmless practice Poi, and talked with friends I don’t see often. And it was almost a New Moon, so it was very dark with a great view of the stars, which is always welcome.

      Stay SINful
