Burning Man - A Week of Radical Self Expression

'You can vacation in say Jamaica and see things that millions have seen before you and millions will see after you...Or you can trek yourself & stuff to BRC and see things that will only be available for one week to see'

Here is an interesting look back at what BM has meant to me and the lessons I have learned each year...

2008A Burning Man Art Project

On the Playa in 2008 we had an interactive sign in front of our camp. The sign was painted - but only had the following written:

"My American Dream is..."

The idea was that passerbys would write on the sign with provided markers.

On this day "Civil Rights Day - Martin Luther King Day" 2009 - we transposed the writings thereof:
