I had met with Larry 10 days ago at the Renwick Gallery in DC and asked if I could have a photo taken with him. Who knew that life would take such a strange twist and turn. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

I met Larry long time back, cut some lumber, swung some hammers with him on the cube club.

Had a chance to be there in the moment, where he wasn’t the face (or hat) of BM, but just another guy with a skill-saw and hammer in his hand.

Get well ol’ man. Keep the jazz playing.

In a chance meeting, I had a one on one conversation with him about the struggles of the organization over commodification. Before that talk I had a completely different opinion of him. He was very articulate in private, thinking deeply about how that would unfold for the event and had many good key questions. I observed he has a lot of insights which others did not, and that has helped guide the now global phenomena of Burning Man.

Never met him... did see him on the crane when they were building the Da Vinci Man...

But a friend of mine helped build the Christina. He had never been to the Burn till they drove it onto the Playa. Larry Harvey approached him saying how much he admired the boat car. Asked him how many people it took to build it, he said just him a two buddies. Larry was amazed and appreciated their work and welcomed them to the Burn. My friend says, "Uh, ok thank you, Sir." Larry, then asks, "Do you know who I am?" My friend says, "No Sir." Larry just laughed. They had a quick chat and Larry went on his way.

Some people approach my friend and say, "OMG you were just talking to Larry Harvey, the founder of Burning Man!" My friend was like, "Oh, neat."

God bless Larry Harvey and all the Godfathers of the Burn. Long live the Man!

...and update on Larry Harvey's condition can be found here. Please keep Larry in your thoughts.

Update 4/17: It has been a week since we made an announcement about Larry Harvey, and we would like to provide you with an update. Though we wish we had better news to share, Larry continues to be in critical condition. His vitals are stable, but Larry is not conscious and we don’t yet know the extent of the damage caused by the stroke. Larry is surrounded by close friends and family, and we all continue to hope for the best possible outcome.

We are humbled and honored by the outpouring of love and support from the global Burning Man community. We have heard from many people about the importance of prayer and faith in times like these. There is great power in good intentions, and we are filled with gratitude for all of you who are giving us positive energy and hope.

Please keep Larry in your thoughts. Thank you so much.
