Your name is Noah and I didn't say yes...

Post by S-isa » Fri Jan 14, 2011 9:56 pm

Your name is Noah, and mine is Sarah. We met at Storybooks in Alleyways camp, and I was stricken by how handsome you were in a blue denim, or perhaps floral, dress. I told you I was from Montreal, and you mentioned McGill- maybe you said you attended, but it's been so long that I can't remember. There was something about you that gave me this strangely warm feeling in my stomach (that i liked), maybe it was the dress, i don't know...

You were leaving then, and you asked me if I would like to join you at the Thunderdome, but I declined. I had told my friends that we would spend the night together walking the playa, and my moments hesitation forced the fear of changing my plans. Nearly 5 months later, and I still think about that night, and what a mistake i made to not join you. Who knows, maybe you're an asshole and i would've had a horrible time, or most likely we would have had a night of heated passion, and all of this missed-chance woe is all a little romanticized- but my gut tells me that we would have had a good time.

When you left, you kissed me on the cheek and left a white hot burn that burns to this day.

So i take a shot in the dark, or rather, fling my coin into the wide open sea, in the hopes that you might see this message; my hoplessly ridiculous, naive and slightly mad, meaningless but all-that-they-could-ever-be, curiosities.

I would normally post this in Lost and found, but no one ever goes there. Youll probably never see him again, but I wish you the best of Luck! Burning Man encounters are fleeting. If you never see him again, always keep that memory with you!

Sarah, I hope you find Noah. So many times on the playa, you meet someone and have a nice conversation or some shared moments, only to have them drift off, never to see them again. I hope this is not the case for you.
I hope our dedicated and compassionate moderators don't move this, and it can be bumped from time to time. Someone on here may know Noah, and maybe he's looking for you too. I am even considering changing my name and buying some denim to wear! :D
Good luck Sarah and please post here again and let us know if you find him.

Noah, please come forward and embrace the one who loves you

Well, McGill University is in Montreal just like you. How many Noahs attend McGill as well as Burning Man. Noah is not that common a name.

I think the administration could provide mug shots of all that fit the description and you could do a line-up! :D

I think I may just be in for encountering him again at the next Burning Man- I posted this message in case he might be looking for me too- sort of my message-in-a-bottle...

LOL and I was going to say: See, whenever a man asks, you should always say yes.

I've read many a thread on this board over the years, rarely has such a simple thread hit me like this one did. We often end up regretting the things we say no to more than the things we say yes to....

In any case I really hope your electronic message in a bottle works!
