Experientialist: a collector of experiences, especially one-of-a-kind.
New Year’s Eve 2012, we gathered in Burson, California to firewalk and ring in the New Year.
This is what we start with:

These are some intense, awesome pictures. Enjoy!
I used the continuous feature on the camera. Many of these are taken maybe a second apart, so you can actually get the feeling of the fire moving. Some of the photos are with a flash the others are not. I also used the night photo option.
And this is what we walked on bridging the gap between 2012 & 2013:
When there were only enough coals for one more walk, we stilled the instruments, stopped singing and shouted out our wish for 2013 as we walked across the coals one last time. This was echoed back by the group. As the goals burned down, the air got colder, our feet colder still from the damp earth, the 30+ of us felt united by our experience and our wishes of peace, good health, tolerance, having fun, happiness and love for the year to come. I wanted to share this with those of you that could not physically be there with me, but were with me in spirit. Aho!
