kjhp Iron Guild at Rockfire. 3d
  •   _beckysue_ So cool! What's it all about and how did you film it? 3d
  •   magsnanna Can you elaborate on the story here!? Thank you! 3d
  •   kjhp Rockfire is at Millstone Hill in Barre VT. It's the site of an old quarry. They have a weekend long event, with hiking and last night's celebration. I took this video with my phone - it's a group of people who use molten steel to make these fire effects. It didn't really have a story, it was just visual. There was a band playing who were timing their playing to the fire. Very cool. 3d
  •   kjhp The best part was once it got totally dark, bagpipers led us to trails through the woods, where we followed trails lit by luminary candles, with stops where musicians played. There are also spots where artists have carved in granite. They were lit completely by torches and luminary candles. It was beautiful. There were fiddlers, a harp player, a man playing a giant xylophone type instrument with a blow torch. They also had GIANT bonfires at the top of the quarry that you could see as you walked through the woods. 3d
  •   kjhp Best of all, on the way back down, there was a big section with birches and maples, with paper lanterns in the trees, and hidden in the ferns. AND more fireflies than I've ever seen in my life. 3d
  •   _beckysue_ That is so flippin' cool! Leave it to Vermonters. I've been to Barre many times. 3d
  •   _beckysue_ They way it appears is as if taken by 8mm. 3d

kjhp "That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. "Your father’s right," she said. "Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corn cribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird."

kjhp Watch out for each other. Love everyone and forgive everyone, including yourself. Forgive your anger. Forgive your guilt. Your shame. Your sadness. Embrace and open up your love, your joy, your truth, and most especially your heart.

kjhp Sandra’s seen a leprechaun,
Eddie touched a troll,
Laurie danced with witches once,
Charlie found some goblins gold.
Donald heard a mermaid sing,
Susy spied an elf,
But all the magic I have known
I've had to make myself.
