August 4, 2007: fire dancers stuck in the fire

I was on my way to a gig and we got caught in a fire — rather there was a fire and traffic was stopped and the road was closed. We had to turn around and go back. That was fun and interesting.

I’ve never seen a natural fire that big before. Beautiful experience. And really humbling too. It was clear the fire had traveled pretty far because we could see where the fire department had put out the fire and where it was still moving.

It was so big. Made The Man burning look small. Very small. Very pale.
