New Year, new and old hoops to jump through.  The fire is an illusion for it only burns if you don't jump.

"The fire is an illusion for it only burns if you don't jump."

that's fairly profound Bill.
and true.

looks like the hoop~jumper is a pro at it.
nice concept and execution. I like those weathered hands.

~wait. Is that the Statue of Liberty in the background???
is she fanning the "flames"?
oh dear.

You are so right. And: happy new year!

This guy looks as though he's mid jump...but for some reason his clothes appear to be burnt.A paradox on your text ".. only burns if you don't jump." ...One has to keep moving forward with time or something will get you. As Richard said..profound.

Drama! Keep it going! :)

To me, this image conjures a few meanings, like 'baptism by fire' perhaps, or if in extracting oneself from a bad situation, 'the only way out is through'. Both a little painful, but your creative style alleviates the trauma. Go Bill!
