Burning Man - A Week of Radical Self Expression

'Burning Man is an Adult Playland', a 29-Hour a day party for a week; A Globally Charged Community in the desert of Northern Nevada.

'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 Burning Man has meant to me and the lessons I have learned each year...

2000 > 2001 > 2002 > 2003 > 2004 > 20052006 > 2007 > 2008 >  
2009 > 2010 > 2011 > 20122013  >  20142015 > 2016 > 2017 > 2018

My first year 2000 was the breakout year...I was always an outgoing, social person, though I found myself feeling very alone in a crowd of 26,000. I was not in a position with myself to meet people easily or to start conversations with those I did not know. On the other hand Kathe was all about everything I found not possible for me and I leaned on and depended on her very much during that week. It took me about six months after returning the first year to process all I had witnessed at BM, I knew I needed to return to be part of that awesome energy and confront some more things about myself.

What lessons did you learn from Burning Man & the Playa in 2000?
