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

2001 the Playa had given me a relationship as we
had met Theresa the year before and she moved in with Kathe & I about 2
months prior to the Playa that year. I had also taken a more leadership
role in PolyParadise and found that to be the place I felt most
comfortable. It was easier to have persons come to me for help because
of that leadership role and then with what seemed like no effort on my
part I was able to create friendships almost immediately. PolyParadise
that year had several Gay or Bi men in its ranks and at the time I was
not comfortable around such individuals. I was not prejudice mind you
just uncomfortable, especially when I noticed them 'Noticing' me.
did you learn from Burning Man & the Playa in 2001?
