Group Description

I was about 7 or 8 years old when my fascination with matches and fire took over my life and put everyone else’s on the rotisserie wheel. We all lived up in the South Bronx where my "fling" began. I used to hear so many fire trucks sirens day and night that I would go out onto to the fire escape to see the trucks run right through my block. It would drive my parents crazy when they heard me go out on a call to turn off another blaze, especially when I would start making up my own sirens with a tube of the paper toilet.
At first it was just looking out the window and some of the blazes and smoke that would set off a parade all over the streets and I would ask pop to take me outside. He would always say “cut it out, that’s not a game outside”. I heard him, so I had to do my own investigation with a book of matches that I found on the couch in the living room. Once I started playing around with the matches it was just the way the flame use to change colors right in front of my very eyes, wow. I loved it, the color blue, and kind of red and yellow sparkling sometimes. Mom and pop were so busy in and out of the house sometimes I thought that if I set fire to something, that I might get more attention that I really wanted so we could go out and do more of my things. All I need are my trustee matches that give me the strength of Spiderman or like the flaming guy in the Fantastic Four. I was a middle child you see and my parents being heavy drinkers and smokers so I thought that our apartment was a perfect place for a barbecue. One time I played in the Bathroom toliet with my super matches and I for the first time Grandma runs out to show me her burnt butt and yelled out "wait till your father gets here." I went back to my fire House for protection (closet). Grandma showed dad the big butt circle and called me out, Tuto get your butt over here now... it's only the beginning. Glioblastoma today, I'm looking another Miracle...
