Ask Baba Yaga: Should I Put Out The Fire In My Belly?

Baba Yaga and Vasilissa by Marisa Firebaugh
So this is a tricky one: you finally come in to your element, only to find you're burning people. What to do?

Today's question and answer (via poet and oracle Taisia Kitaiskaia* of The Hairpin):

Baba Yaga (companion piece) by Marisa Firebaugh
Hm. This might take a while.Maybe I should ask my friends to wear flame retardant clothing while I'm in training...

What do you think of Baba Yaga's advice?

Want to ask Baba Yaga a question of your own?
You can!
There's now an email address where you can send your questions
directly to Baba Yaga herself.

To encourage Baba Yaga to continue imparting her no-bones-about-it wisdom (ok, there may be some gristle in there... bones too), I suggest we not to leave her box empty... 

Thank you Baba Yaga (& Taisia).
