Re: Hello

Regardless, do not commit to very much in your first year. You will need plenty of time to simply gape in awe -- seven square miles of it. :shock: Where's the fun in gaping? I'm not much of a fan of spectator sports - life is meant to be lived :) Certainly. Please allow me to clarify. Yesterday, th...

Re: Hello

Correction to my earlier post: I said "admitting" to being lonely. But there is nothing to admit to! No wrong-doing to confess to! No reason for guilt at all!
I should have said ...taboo against discussing this common human problem openly.

(But I admit to making that mistake. ;-) )

Re: Hello

Welcome to ePlaya, Kathy! And congratulations on being able to say " I'm lonely ". So many of us are lonely in this technology-centered society, but there seems to be a taboo against admitting it. Well, Burners are the precicely the sort of folks who dismiss taboos. Perhaps it is too early...

The What Where When book

Am I the only one who reads the What Where When in mid-September? Eleven Burns, and I have never had time to look at it on Playa. Then in September, I kick myself for failing to know about something I would very much have wanted to participate in. But I can look for the same, or a similar, activity ...
