"Do you not know that a [human] is not dead while [their] name is still spoken?" - Terry Pratchett

Friends, as part of the Temple Galaxia this year, we created Spoken: a lighting pattern where the names of those special to us will be pulsed out from Temple in morse code, memorializing them in the light of the playa.

Our intent is to channel the unique opportunity of this year's architecture and theme to support the special meaning that the Temple holds in many of our hearts, and to provide another way for our community—both those who can make it to the playa this year and those who cannot—to interact with the Temple in a meaningful way.

If you would like to submit a name, please do so at http://galaxiaspoken.org/. When you see a light sparkling on Galaxia, know that the names of those special to you are being spoken by the Temple.

Thank you. I submitted the name of a good friend that passed away earlier this year. He was the one that introduced me to Burning Man and had been going since the 90's.

Miss you buddy....I'll see you at the temple.... :(
