|This Witch give Burning Man 2 thumbs up!|
Burning Man is happening this week. I am not attending this year, for the first time since I arrived home in 2009. If I had to sign up for a church, it would be the Church of Burning Man. If I had to join a cult, it would be Burning Man, and if I had to live in one place forever more, it would be Black Rock City. This of course means that I am pretty devastated by not attending the festival this year. I am glad to see so many of my friends attending, but as you all know, my money and living sitch has been strained (more than usual) this year. So instead, I've been repeating these little scripts in my head- pretty much convincing myself that its ok to miss the best place on this planet.
Apparently, I can't come up with anything else. Hopefully I will be distracted enough with the planning of Battlemoor and the making of crafts that I forget that a place where people are not judged on their sex, gender, orientation, color, beliefs, ideas, clothes (or lack of) exists....Now I am just making myself feel worse.
Alright new tactic! I'm gonna smoke and drink and dance and prance like I am at Burning Man, so if you see some brightly-festooned person with goggles, a cup of questionable liquid in hand, trying to climb a neon sign, looking for the big light show, it might be me... unless I decide to paint the side of my house, either way, I encourage you to Burn with me in the safety of your own home. Stay tuned for tomorrow when I share tips on how to Burn Along at Home with me!
