Fires a'Light

My name is Mbalenhle. This directly translates into "beautiful flower." You can catch me hooping at festivals and other events in Cape Town. <3

Remember to watch in Hd!!

I did a little LED video with my future hoop pro from moodhoops. I still love it after all these months!

Hooping in the botanical gardens (take II) :) 

Hooping in kirstenbosch gardens..

The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that’s not the one. When you meet your ‘soul mate’ you’ll feel calm. No anxiety, no agitation



"Gulabi Gang" is a gang of women in India who track down and beat abusive husbands with brooms.

Another reason why I love my little village.

Can you say hoop crush? Mbali Ngubane of Fires Alight is a joy to watch, spinning up so much inspiration on a beautiful day. She explains, “It is the first sunny day we have had in awhile so I decided to make a little video to amp everyone up.” Amp them for what? A workshop she’ll be teaching soon. She lives in Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa, and the soundtrack for this video is called “Rises in the East” by Kalya Scintilla. You can grab a copy of it for yourself quite easily on iTunes.

I don’t care
if you messed up today
or if you mess up tomorrow
or if things didn’t go as planned
and you didn’t win all of your battles
this is not a straight road
this is not an easy journey
so I don’t care
what I do care about is you
and your health
and you are trying
and you are strong
so don’t let today stop you
let it help you to learn
because things won’t always be easy
but you will get there
you will recover


“what if the aborted baby could have cured cancer???”

oh my god what if the last egg I bled onto a kotex product could have cured cancer??

oh my god how am I not birthing every possible egg I produce, lest one of those resulting babies be the person who cures cancer/AIDS/creates world peace????

what if that baby could have been a musical artist described by pitchfork as “liberace with a metalcore twist”????

how dare i not be pregnant/birthing all the time always?????

Finally some sun here in Cape Town :) <3 Hoop time :) <3

Thinking of maybe deleting my blog, don’t have the time to run it at the moment.

“Even After All this time.
The Sun never says to the Earth,

"You owe me."

Look What happens With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”
