FirewalkShall I, shan’t I? Would you?

I have almost but not quite been persuaded to do a firewalk next month (come on, it’s for charity).

I’m so completely not going to do it. But then, I also kind of want to.

Apparently it’s perfectly safe and there is no trick to it at all, just simple physics. But it isn’t mind over matter, is it? It’s the opposite – matter over mind, objective fact over subjective fear, physics over intuition, will over instinct. Will is something I have a lot of, although in fairness most people call it sheer bloodymindedness.

What the hell. Let’s find a babysitter.
