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

2012 – Don't Have to be leading EVERYTHING
This will be my 13th trip to Black Rock City. It is not just the
trip to the desert; it is the year-round events and the thousands of
people I have met and now consider part of my family that make this
the journey of a lifetime. I cannot image my life
without Burning Man; major kudos to my life partner WildChild for
keeping up with the pace.
Playa Lessons Learned…
will be my 13th Burn & 11th serving as Camp Daddy, Benevolent
realize that if I am 'Leading' every event then no other person gets
to be in the Spotlight; no one else gets to have the accolades,
headaches and be a leader. In 2012
there will be several events where I will be just a participant.
I will carry no radio, I will not be listed as Lead of anything -
just a participant.
good to face your demos every once in a while...
in LOVE with Burning Man; of course I am in Love with myself but
that is for another posting...
are many circles in my life right now; things coming back around and
I find myself standing at the very same cross roads. If I make
the same decision I did before but it is with a different cast of
characters; will the outcome by the same or different? I am
interested to find out.
It is not the Playa unless you have at
least one personal meltdown moment - It is not Burning Man if you do
not have at least two meltdown moments when you return to the
Default World - I am 2 for 2!
Some Burning Man lessons do not come to you until you leave the
Playa - This year they were front & center from Day 1 - Nice cause
you get to play with them in your head for the whole week.
Do not go to Burning Man with EXPECTATIONS!!
did you learn from Burning Man & the Playa in 2012?
