Xavier Caylor teaches Flagging at Gold’s Gym and with several friends and fans, put on this event to bring fellow flaggers together and to raise some money for the maintenance of the Aids Grove in Golden Gate Park. Xavier speaks of his flagging experiences as meditations and talks about how “you can be in a room with 1,000 or 2,000 people, yet spend time with just yourself.” Speaking to the dichotomy of the flagging experience, Xavier references how these “opposite experiences” are part of weaving the rich tapestry of this art form.
Whatever the experience, everyone had a great time and there were a number of “newbies” trying flagging for the first time with some patient help from the experts. All the many flags made for a beautiful kaleidoscope of changing patterns and colors and brightened a foggy day with the love and enthusiasm of the participants. More photos.
