|How would you describe yourself as a flagger?||
Probably a bit reckless … lets call that enthusiastic.
|What is it about flagging that you enjoy the most?||
The euphoric (natural high) that comes to me. Time and surroundings diminish and I am in ?The Zone?. Life?s burden is lifted. I feel free!
|How long have you been flagging? How did you get started?||
I honestly got my true beginnings in NYC at the Flagging Symposium on February 26, 2005. I actually saw Phillip Bryan flag many years before and have him on my list of ?flag daddies?, because I never stopped thinking about what I saw him do … he was so amazing! I spent a few years at home with a knotted dish towel in my hand, wondering what I was missing!
|What was your first flagging experience?||
The symposium in NYC changed my life. I came back to Denver and for a time when friends would ask me about my experience there, I could only choke up. There was no way for me to describe my feeling or talk about the wonderful people I met. So I would cry and they thought I was ?touched? and I realized that it was true ? I had been deeply touched, down to the soul, by that experience.
|What was one of your best flagging experiences?||
I just know that there are so many yet to come and I am so excited about that.
Attending IML in May ?05 and flagging on stage at House Of Blues, with my friend Jack, while DJ Bill Bennett performed was AWSOME!
|Who has inspired or taught you?||
Thanks and Love to:
|What was one of your wildest or craziest flagging experiences?||
Hands down ? being questioned/harassed by security at Chichen Itza, Mexico for flagging on top of the pyramid! They wanted to confiscate my ?Don Baker? flags, for which I would have gone to jail to save. Boy, am I glad my partner (flag widow) speaks fluent Spanish ? I think he saved my butt! And to know more, you just need to ask!
|Do you make your own sets? Can you describe what kind you make?||
I have the silk … dye … wights … all supplies in a big Rubber Maid box … now, like the Cowardly Lion, I must find the courage!
