I had a vivid Burning Man dream last night.

We all have em. Sometimes it's a endless frustration. Other times it's a chase scene from an action movie.

Last night BM was in Hawaii. My husband drove us there. I forgot my costumes and clothes. When I went to the oceanside area I found a golf course and casino. You know, the usual dream.

I had one a couple of nights ago where I was lounging in my tent reading and napping; when I emerged to use the restroom I realized that Burning Man was over and I missed all of it.

Preemptive FOMO?

I had an interesting Burning Man dream last night. Toilet paper was completely banned - even 1-ply. I was lecturing a burgin, expounding on the (in the dream, completely valid) method of toilet approach in order to achieve a clean poop. I think it had something to do with that Squatty Potty ad that was going around social media recently.

"...the creamy poop of a mystic unicorn. Totally clean, totally cool, and soft-served straight from a sphincter. Mmm. They’re good at pooping. "

New theme camp idea forming in my mind...
Sadly it is lonely. It is empty in there.

I had one last night, the playa was still ankle deep in water, I guess that made it a Burning Man wet dream!

OMG Playa Dreams!

So amazing that so many people have them!

I've had some beyond epic ones...

One of the most interesting was the day after this year's Burn, extra trippy considering what happened to me that next day...

So, in the dream...

I was walking down 9:30 to nearly Esplenade, at night, full blown party time... and this dude with two girls around his arms calls me by name, as they pass by all dressed in white... but I didn't know who he was so I turn around and ask "Thanks, but who are you?"

"Don't worry," he responds with a smile, "we're angels. We're gonna protect you."

Then the three of them sprout wings and fly off into the sky!

But I'm like, whatever and turn back to look at the Playa ready to get funky.

I wake up like, Holy Shit Batman!

So, what makes it extra trippy is that that day after the dream Pretty Lights played in Reno... I had to go thinking is was the most obviously awesome after Burn party possible... but I didn't quite make it because there were a couple guys on the side of the street across from the venue next to a van. They offered me a beer in a glass and since I was still in Playa mode I accepted it. I asked them if they wanted to smoke a bowl, they said yeah but in the van so I was like whatevs. As I finished the beer they said i wasn't looking good and they had to take me to the hospital. I said, "No I'm fine, let me out." Then the van started moving, I reached for the door handle, but got pushed down and blacked out...

Woke up in a hospital with no idea of how or why I was there...

But I survived... it taught me great lessons of how many people Love me in my life... but the Immediate tripiness of that dream resonated heavily. Three angels said they were gonna protect me the day before something probably real bad happened...

And that ain't nearly my most epic Playa dream... more to come...

So, my third most epic Playa Dream invloves flying and a nuclear bomb...

Not exactly glamorous but a powerful lesson...

So, I got brought to BRC by people protecting me from a potential nuclear attack on the Bay, I live in Tahoe so I had to evacuate....

But it wasn't happy party Burning Man time, it was desolate... I got left alone...

But quickly realized I could levitate and fly... so I started doing fun backflips and spin moves, super fun...

But then I thought, if I can fly maybe I can stop this nuclear bomb... so I flew straight back to Tahoe which leads to the Bay...

The nuclear bomb went off but I flew straight into and it dissipated as I flew thru it...

I arrived to Tahoe and circled the Lake... then for whatever reason flew into a young families' house as they were praying at their dining room table afraid the bomb would destroy Tahoe...

I landed and said, "It's the Love of God that saved us."

Then I woke up...

True Playa Dream...

Two even more epic ones to come...

So, my second most epic Playa Dream was in the future...

In a point in time when Black Rock City is now Black Rock Planet... the Mayor/Queen is Angelina Jolie for whatever reason...

But I was on eARTh doing some recruiting... I was friends with the President of Planet Earth's son... we in the Bay area which was renovated with beautiful glass architecture and the hills lush and green... we were joyriding in his flying Ferrari... I was just trying to get him to come to Black Rock Planet and Burn... but he just asked, "Why would I want to invest in those stupid hippies?" I was like, "Cause we're in a flying Ferrari!"

But he didn't get it... so I returned to the streets in the business district... everyone suited up running riot in chase of the old mighty dollar... silliness considering Black Rock Nation had overcome Commodification with its own Planet...

In this beautiful future city there was one little elevator that was under construction, it looked ratty and ragged and no one was stopping for a second to even acknowledge it... but I walked up to it lucidly, ducked the caution tape and got in... Only this wasn't a regular elevator, it was a wormhole/instant tramission link to Black Rock Planet!

Instantly I went from sunlight in San Francisco to night time on another planet where the Burn was going down and popping off at all times... there were some people waiting for me to see how things went... Only slightly disappointing that the President of Planet Earth's son didn't want to leave to join Black Rock Planet.

But the Burn rages on beyond this planet... in my dreams.

I had this dream a few days ago where I was outside the Burn looking in which symbolizes the fact that I didn't have a ticket and wasn't sure if I was gonna be able to go this year... in the dream there were a bunch of folks on some tall scaffolding and some lady was shaking it from the bottom making everyone loose balance... a friend of mine came out and said just say you're my son... I was like, we're the same age... then another friend came out with some lady who was ODing so we took her to the hospital and did lines she couldn't handle on the way... anyway...

I wake up this morning with $8 to my name... but I decide it's time to start looking for a ticket... don't gotta make sense... so I put out the feelers, have a good day of business... and now I have my ticket!

Oh, how dreams come true...

See ya in the Dust! :mrgreen:

Had a dream last night that has inspired a new art installation... simple short dream, but inspiring...

... I was climbing an installation on the Playa that will be called the "Musical Jungle Gym." Just climbing a wooden jungle gym that had a particular path you went thru while climbing... and every so often there were a couple buttons to choose from. Each button would play a music loop... but when I got to two buttons, you could only select one at a time and that loop would play as you moved onto the next set of buttons.

Pretty simple but it's inspired me want to make the jungle gym... and each choice of buttons would play a loop of different melodies and beats, compositions... you pick which one you like then climb on to the next set of buttons which has loops that sound good along with either of the buttons you've previously chosen... then as you you climb thru the gym you create a symphony of loops that sound good no matter what buttons you've selected along the way... and of course the person climbing on behind you could change the buttons along their path... so it'd create some climbing fun, promote participation in the composition of the symphony, interactive artistic collaboration...

And of course it was made out of wood so it'll all Burn down.

I had a dream last night that I was in the event, but took a train to the outskirts of black rock city with a few folks I barely knew. The outskirts of the city was a city itself, filled to the brim with scientists and engineers and an entire party outside of "The" party. They were the overseers I guess. There was a huge screen in the hub where they were managing the fires and predicting what people would do or how they would react. I was able to get in with a few guys who were testing a new rocket to send to the event and unfortunately the rocket had some technical difficulties and fired right where I was standing in front of this glass that was apparently not only bullet proof, but missile proof as well.
We all laughed and continued the party.
Even though it was fun, I had this longing urge to get back to the main event in the city and since I had already been invited/initiated to the engineers city, they said I wasn't allowed to participate at Burning Man.
Then this lesbian wanted me to fuck her and well... there ya have it.

when I woke up I felt incredibly sad, I can only assume I had this dream because the nerves I've been having about not going to the burn this upcoming uear. Still, there is a lot of time left to prepare and get there. But I feel I won't be making it. Guess I gotta go build some rockets and find a girlfriend instead. :wink:

I Just came from a conference a few weeks ago in Vegas, I dreamt I was at Burning Man collecting gifts from camp "booths" and was observing all the art installations in a large wooded area with open fields.... Don't know why, but my Burning Man dreams are always in this forest open area.

Whats even funnier, that's exactly what I did when I visited Container Park looking at all the Burning Man art setup there. I'll take it however I can get it... even in dream format!!

Watchu got?

Ok, so my most epic Playa Dream does not start on the Playa at all... it starts in BFA (Butt. Fuck. Africa.) In the middle of the wild Serengeti... nothing but wilderness in sight in all directions.

So, I start walking in a random direction... then I hear some rustling in the bushes... and then out pops a full blown tiger! I'm pretty sure he's trying to eat me so I start running...

Then all of a sudden some beautiful sparkle pony Burner girl goes skipping by us faster than a gazelle... so the Tiger starts to chase her instead. But when he catches her, she just says, "Leave me alone." And the Tiger stops looking a bit offended... so he starts chasing after me again. I start running towards a tree and around kicking and screaming at the Tiger to stop and don't eat me!

Then, the Tiger sits down calmly like a house cat and says...

"Ok, I won't eat you."

I'm like, "What, you speak English?!"

"Yeah, most of us do." The Tiger then explains, "Whatever animal you eat right before you die in your past life you will reincarnate into in your next life... why do you think there are so many cows?" :mrgreen:

Then the Tiger says, "I think you should eat a hippo, more meat!" And licks his lips...

I'm like, "Cheeky tiger."

Then I wake up... but not in Defaultia... I "wake up" in the dream in a cabin that i thought was in the Serengeti, but it wasn't... it was in the middle of the Playa!

I just talked to a Tiger in Africa and now I'm at Burning Man! This dream is getting good...

But then all of a sudden, seven tornadoes are approaching the Playa. People start running and screaming for their lives... but for some reason I felt like, "I got this."

I just knew I had the ability to create Kamahamaha Waves (if you're not familiar with Dragon Ball Z, it's the ability to shoot light balls out of your hands to destroy things.)

So, I conjure up a Kamahamaha Wave and delete the first tornado. Repeat this six more times and all the tornadoes are obliterated. Everyone is staring at me like, "Oh shit!"

Then I catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror... I have my body but on top is a full blown Lion's head!

Then I say, "I think in my next life I'll be the King of the jungle." :mrgreen:
