I offered Pele a ceremonial shirt to thank her for my abundance of good health, the miracle of watching earth grow and the honor to be of service.

An AMAZING series of events followed. First, the lava actually started flowing AROUND the shirt BEFORE it caught fire. The lava then cirlced the shirt while it burned. The lava flowed OVER the shirt only AFTER it completely circled the shirt. Most interesting!
