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:

Don't tell me how to live my life and I will return the favor  
I'm bored of freedom

One that doesn't require the exploitation of people or natural resources  
Greater unity amidst greater diversity  
World Peace C.O.  
Not expressible in human words  
To burn it all down  
Joy in truth  
Peace and Love  
It's not steak & blowjobs  
That Burning Man runs the country  
Running down the street naked, covered in green jelly, reading Playboy magazine and thinking Happy Thoughts  
"You are becoming who you really are"
