Well done. I find writing helps a lot during decompression and always like to read about others experiences.

Burning Man 2014: Life Reset

My interest in Burning Man began in 2000 after watching Ian Wright on The Lonely Planet. I watched entranced about this temporary city in the desert and the things that went on there; I knew then that one day I would go. Life went on its path and Burning Man became forethought in my mind for years a...

Still cleaning, washing, drying, and repacking stuff into storage. Surely, but slowly it'll all get done. Kinda amazed at the space freeing up in my small apartment as I put things into storage.

The tail end of a Italian pizza delivered by some beautiful stranger from the Eridu Society along with a dog tag from them; the also beautiful people that gave me random slices of pomegranate and water melon, and camp mates that spritzed me with lavender infused water from a rose sprayer.

Eplaya is giving me a place to process during Decomp and has given me tuns of info beyond the survival guide on how to prepare for BM, and gives me laughs when I need it.

I think for me it is a case of both. If it were just pure lust....maybe it would not hurt so much....I also need more time to pull my head out of my ass about my whole BM experience.

The truth was the exact opposite, so I was pretty pissed off. The last time I saw her was in a courtroom. She'd been arrested for extremely drunk driving and had put someone in the hospital in the crash. Since it was a public proceeding, I decided to attend, dressed in a very nice suit, sitting up ...
