Living in the fire can be rewarding. Yes, it’s all true: the energy, the healing, never having to sleep, and I smile all the time. But it isn’t all easy. Most people can’t tolerate my body heat. Takes a special person for that. Then there’s the food. I have to eat all the time. Seriously. I eat five or six times an hour. Every hour. That’s not easy to do. Plus, I go through clothes like you wouldn’t believe. A shirt might last a day. Shoes? A week or two tops.
