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...

2011A Burning Man Art Project

On the Playa in 2011 we had an interactive sign in front of our camp.
The sign was painted - but only had the following written:

"Rites of Passage - Where have you been? Where are you going?"

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

On this day - we transposed the writings thereof:

A place of delight, Trust, Love, Art, Laughter, Passion, Fame, Ego, Boredom, Frustration, Loss, Fear, Sadness, Insecurity, a place of nothing, DUST, blows it wide-open spaces; where there was nothing before, Creation anew, Growth, Evolution, Fresh perspective  
   
Acting as a citizen of the world  
   
Guided by others opinions  
   
If I told you that I might have to marry you...  
   
Going to a place with more love...  
   
I finally made it to my family of Burners.  
   
Penis in Vagina  
   
Lost in the midst of illusion  
   
I want to play  
   
Nowhere  
   
Abandoned by a trusted lover  
   
Your mom's house  
   
To the worst nightmare  
   
Collective subconscious  
   
To hell and back  
   
Straight?  
   
Unhappily married  
   
All across the man  
   
To the end of the line  
   
Living & learning as best I can, in the situation I am able, thankful for the things I have learned  
   
Horsebrain; I was in one - Call the cops  
   
Breast Cancer Survivor - Yeah Bitches  
   
Thank you Earth & Universe  
   
Life is beautiful and so are you  
   
Here you are - and now you are there  
   
Finding my true love on the second try  
   
Traveling way to quickly thru time  
   
May the world continue as she does; may humans learn to adapt  
   
We made it!  
   
An elevator smells different to a little person  
   
I am finally 21  
   
I am going to experience...I have been afraid to long  
   
My first time home, my heart and soul have been beautifully changed  
   
Freedom from judgment  
   
Forewards  
   
To find peace  
   
Into the future  
   
I am going to happiness  
   
Straight to the top  
   
Everywhere  
   
Home - Black Rock City Family - PolyParadise  
   
Totally Gay  
   
To the greatest dream  
   
Conscious unconsciousness  
   
To Love  
   
To Pee  
   
Across the line and off into the distance  
   
We are all connected thru our experience interacting together  
   
To change the world  
   
To love myself first  
   
All the way...  
   
I am going where I have not been  
   
Someplace that lets me be completely and without judgment and with complete acceptance and love  
   
Inner and Outer space (man)  
   
Love thru all time & space  
   
Guided by the inspiration ahead  
   
To the center of my heart to the divine goddess I am  
   
VORDAK . THgOMV + Lady Hornet - I Love You!  
   
Years in the making  
   
I embraced who I really am for the first time  
   
I am finally home - Love me  
   
Love All  
   
Yay  
   
That Way
